Nurses and Doctors Speaking Out on Safety Now Risk Their Job
New York Times
SEIU 121RN member from HCA’s West Hills Hospital was quoted in a New York Times story about hospitals retaliating against front line healthcare workers for speaking out.
“They’re very protective of their reputation in the community,” said Jhonna Porter, a nurse who was suspended from West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles after raising safety concerns in a private Facebook group and publicly on her own page, including appeals for equipment. “If anything seems like it might make them look bad, they’re going to stomp on it quick.”
