Kaiser Says 4-Day Nurse Walkout Won't Disrupt Patient Care
Hundreds of registered nurses began a four-day strike at Kaiser Permanente's Los Angeles Medical Center Thursday, the second short-term walkout in three months. The HMO says it has hired enough replacement nurses to ensure normal operations throughout the job action. Kaiser has lined up more than 500 traveling and replacement nurses to fill in, said Kaiser spokeswoman Socorro Serrano. (Glickman, 6/23)
