Grantee Progress Report Narrative

The Proposal

United Medical Center is a 165 bed acute care hospital facility. DCNA and SEIU are two union organizations with participants in the facility. If funded we plan to provide a pleasant, clean, private, non-bathroom location for the breastfeeding employee to regularly express milk. United Medical Center is a 165 bed acute care hospital facility. DCNA and SEIU are two union organizations with participants in the facility. If funded we plan to provide a pleasant, clean, private, non-bathroom location for the breastfeeding employee to regularly express milk. Currently, we do not have a formal program and would need to develop supportive policies for program initiation and management.

  1. The room is available with seating
  2. Would request repainting of room
  3. Placement of requested items, storage cabinet, pamphlet display, clock radio with CD player
  4. Stock pamphlet display with current educational pamphlets
  5. Create human resources- Breast feeding support policy
  6. Post and educate staff on new policy

Upon completion we will continually advertise that the room is available. The plan includes tracking the number of employees utilizing the area. Additionally, we will survey users for evaluation of the designated area. The plan includes tracking the number of employees utilizing the area.
