The ANMF has intensified efforts at the Launceston General Hospital (LGH) to ensure proper consultation regarding the Ambulance Tasmania (AT) 60-minute offload protocol. Multiple appearances before the Industrial Commission underscore the commitment to ensuring appropriate nursing staffing levels across all wards amidst access and flow demands. Stay tuned for updates.

The ANMF Considers Grievance at LGH Emergency Department (ED)

Concerns escalate at the LGH Emergency Department (ED) as the ANMF contemplates filing a Step 1 Grievance. The move responds to management’s decision to expand ED capacity due to the AT offload protocol without commensurate increase in nursing staff. The ANMF emphasises the critical need for staffing to meet rising demand while ensuring staff and patient safety.

Updates are correct as of 4 April 2024.
