UCLA Nurses to Hold Candlelight Vigil

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - To celebrate the steps that have been taken at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center in protecting nurses' health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic and to call for further action from the federal government, nurses will hold a candlelight vigil during their shift change this evening, the California Nurses Association says.

During the event, nurses will describe recent improvements that nurses have won at UCLA and demand further improvements for nurses everywhere, according to a statement.

In the last week, UCLA nurses say they have won greater access to personal protective equipment (PPE) for all nurses, and other benefits for nurses who care for COVID-19 patients.

Nurses at UCLA will be holding a candle light vigil to show solidarity and support for nurses across the nation and to demand stronger leadership from the federal government in protecting the health and safety of all healthcare workers and their patients, according to a statement.

The event will take place from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, 757 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles.
