RPA Ward Assistants: Linen Bags Update

Following HSU Newsletter 269 issued 1 April 2021, the HSU has today written to RPA management with respect to these items:

  1. RPA management do not appear to have informed the relevant Nursing Unit Managers of the agreement reached over this issue last Thursday. The HSU has called for management to inform these staff.
  2. The HSU has also asked RPA management to amend the new Safe Work Practice on Linen Bag Use, to make it clear that it is not the Ward Assistant’s job to empty dirty linen bags.

If you have any questions or concerns about the above, please contact HSU Member Services on 1300 478 679 or memberservices@hsu.asn.au.
