Grievances are alleged violations of the contract, or violations of certain longstanding practices in the hospital, on the part of management.

Assignment Despite Objection (ADO) Forms
You should fill out an electronic Assignment Despite Objection (ADO) form anytime you are being assigned work that you feel is unsafe, that violates departmental staffing guidelines, or that potentially violates the nursing Code of Ethics. ADO forms can help protect your nursing license by documenting your objection. They also create a record of staffing problems that MNA can use to change dangerous patterns.
