18,000 nurses in northern California are planning a strike over their hospitals' safety standards in treating Ebola.By Matt Moreno | November 9, 2014
Two Dallas area nurses contracted Ebola after treating the first American patient from the virus, Thomas Eric Duncan. Investigations revealed that a lack of training and equipment to deal to protect them from the virus may have been why those two nurses contracted the disease.
Now, 18,000 nurses in northern California are planning a strike because of just that.
VIA KNTV: "The union says Kaiser is not doing enough to protect nurses and other workers against the Ebola virus. Kaiser denies that claim and says all of its facilities will remain open during the nurses strike."
