RNs Picket Kaiser Hospitals Over Inadequate Staffing
On Dec. 19, 2012,Â members and supporters of California Nurses Association/National Nurses United took part in informational picketing outside of 21 Kaiser Permanente hospitals. The nurses said they were protesting inadequate staffing at the hospitals, as well as delays in patient care. Gay Westfall -- senior vice president of Kaiser Permanente -- said, "Kaiser Permanent was an early advocate for nurse-staffing ratios, and we staff to meet all ratios."
