Mankato Mayo Nurses Picketing Today 17 Sep 13

Nurses are picketing outside the Mankato Mayo Hospital today (TUE) as a show of solidarity as contract talks continue with hospital management. RN Chad Weiler says they want to advocate for patient safety. Weiler claims that low nurse staffing levels have put patients at risk. He also says management is replacing some registered nurses with technicians who only have 12 weeks of training. More than 470 registered nurses work for Mayo Health System-Mankato.
