HERDS Strike Survey is CANCELED Due to Tentative Settlement Between 1199 & LVHH

Karen Morris and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

DOH sent the alert below to facilities informing them that HERDS survey for strike is canceled.

Thanks to the success of negotiations between 1199 SEIU and the League of Voluntary Hospitals and Homes, a tentative agreement has been reached and the July 31, 2014 one-day strike has been averted.

We therefore CANCEL the need for facilities to submit data in the "Strike Impact and Readiness Assessment" survey in HERDS on the Health Commerce System. We thank all facilities who inquired and were ready to provide this information and are grateful for the positive outcome of this situation.
