Ventura County Nurses Issue No Confidence Vote in Management, Citing Staffing, Pay Issues
At a Ventura County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, the nurses union at Ventura County's public hospitals issued a vote of no confidence in management. Nurses -- who are represented by the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United and are in contract negotiations with county management -- discussed insufficient staffing, low pay and indifferent management during the meeting. Tina Greiger -- a nurses union representative -- said that a vote taken last week of nurses at Ventura County Medical Center and other county Health Care Agency facilities found that 99% of respondents think a "crisis of leadership" exists within the county and its health agency.
