Tenet strikes again!

Of course, federal law is on the RN's side and I hope she wins a big chunk of money in addition to the reinstatement.

But...I've been most underwhelmed with the CNA and so far have found them to operate as a company union, with all but nonexistent support for nurses (except in terms of salary, which, of course does help, but doesn't begin to solve the problems).
