A Strike Offers a Window Into What Nurses Want

From a Washington Post column by Helaine Olen headlined “A strike offers a window into what nurses really want: enough staff”:

Danny Fuentes works as a nurse in New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital’s transplant unit, where his father once received a new liver. It takes a lot for him to leave his patients and march on a picket line. But he did it this week as part of a three-day strike against his hospital and nearby Montefiore Medical Center, an action that ended this Thursday with a tentative contract, because, he said, it was in the best interests of his patients.
