No 12-hour shifts at NYC Hospitals?

  1. We're in the process of losing the option of 12-hour shifts in my area and I noticed that more than 10 years ago many NYC area hospitals had made this change or were in the process (including Columbia/NY Presbyterian, SUNY, Maimonades, and NY methodist).

    Did this stick? Are these hospitals still 8-hour only shifts?

    If not, was anybody at any of these Hospitals around 1998 and knows the story?
