Post Gazette Letters to the Editor: Nurses on Butler Hosp.

  1. Hi everyone,

    A few weeks ago an article about a nursing strike at Butler Hospital - Pittsburgh, PA and consequences of that strike was posted. Thought some of you might like to see what the nurses of our region thought of it.

    Scroll down to the middle of the page.

    i didnt read massey's article but if they are his usual fare im thankful i didnt. he is not the brightest star in the sky.

    so in the end what did the butler nurses get?
    from the news reports i heard, they never got anything in black and white...just some vague statement regarding ratio.

    This the same writer, encouraged nurses to just leave if they didn't like what is going on in nursing. He got slammed by nurses here in Pgh. Perhaps he likes to play the devil's advocate to keep readers interested and keep his job? I can't think of any other reason, as he has to know better. Please all, click on the above post and slam him again!
