Nurses Rally For More Protective Equipment To Prevent Covid-19 Infection


SANTA CLARITA (CNS) - Nurses at PIH Health-Good Samaritan Hospital planned to hold a demonstration and media availability today to protest what they describe as a lack of personal protective equipment for frontline health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They plan to describe current conditions and the need for more N95 respirators and other protective gear required to safely treat COVID-19 patients.

The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United says it's the nation's largest nurses union, representing 150,000 registered nurses across the country.

The event is scheduled to start at 6:30 a.m. during a shift change.
