Worcester Hospital And Nurses Union To Meet As Possible Strike Looms
Nurses at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester said they will head back to the negotiating table with hospital officials Monday night.
In February, the nurses voted to authorize a strike for March 8 if they couldn't reach an agreement.
They said nurses who work with people in for something like surgery or pneumonia are currently responsible for five patients at once.
Marie Ritacco, who's a nurse at the hospital and vice president of the Massachusetts Nurses Association, said the people they care for are suffering as a result.
