Nurses strike at Washington Hospital Center

National Nurses United members began a twenty-four hour strike at Washington Hospital Center on March 4. They walked off the job at seven in the morning claiming the hospital is under staffing its medical services. Contracts and patient safety were also amongst the nurses' concerns.
