Nurses at Washington Hospital Center (MWHC) are planning to go on strike this Monday, December 22 to demand that MedStar address patient safety at the hospital. They’ll rally at noon with supporters (see calendar at left). "We have raised serious concerns about safe staffing and clinical practices but we have received no serious response from hospital executives. Patients’ lives are at stake,” said Washington Hospital Center RN Mindy Blandon. “Nurses are forced to take this action in order for hospital managers to negotiate in good faith about issues of health, safety, and equity.” Click here now to watch a short video and sign a petition to show your support.
