Hundres of Nurses and Other Health Care Professionals to Picket Governor Romney’s “State of the State” Speech

Romney Address the State: "What a Great Job I’ve Done"

Nurses to Romney: "Why Aren’t You Concerned with the State’s Most Vulnerable Patient"

Registered nurses and health care professionals from across the Commonwealth will gather Wednesday evening to picket the Governor’s annual "State of the State" address. These 1800 health care workers, represented by the Mass Nurses Association, have been without a contract now for 934 days. Because the state’s dragging its feet, many of the facilities where these professionals work are finding it increasingly difficult to retain and recruit experienced staff. This has a very detritus affect on the patients for which they care. These patients–the mentally ill, severely retarded, homeless, disabled veterans—are the most vulnerable in the state.
