Editorial: Lawmakers Bent to Unions in Killing Nurse Bill
Senators who rejected a bill (SB 1111), by Sen. Gloria Negrete McLeod (D-Chino), that would have permitted the state to track nurses with serious patient care infractions "took their marching orders from the unions" that cared more about "unionism" than "quality health care," a Fresno Bee editorial states. "Nurses who prey on patients are rare," though when it happens, California "needs to be able to strip them of their licenses," the editorial continues.
