Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) and San Francisco Supervisors John Avalos and Eric Mar joined labor leaders, patients, and hospital workers in a protest rally Thursday, April 4, at UCSF Parnassus Campus to highlight growing concerns about the UC Medical system and to denounce the recent elimination of 300 jobs at UCSF Medical Center.
Last month, UC Patient Care Technical Workers released a blistering new whistleblower report exposing chronic understaffing and other deficiencies across a $6.9 billion UC Medical system that is expected to have hundreds of thousands of new customers by the start of next year. The report documented problems ranging from preventable infections and skyrocketing executive pay, to under sanitized facilities and a growing number of state health watchdog reports that have cited UC medical facilities—including UCSFMC--for putting patients at risk.
