New York City Nurses Return to Work after Tentative Deals Reached with Hospitals

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.6

A 3-day nurses’ strike in New York City has come to an end after the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) reached tentative deals with two private hospital systems, Mount Sinai Health System and Montefiore Health System, on Thursday. The nurses association said that both hospitals agreed to “enforceable safe staffing ratios,” so that “there will always be enough nurses at the bedside to provide safe patient care, not just on paper.” More than 7,000 nurses went on strike in the last 3 days, demanding to raise nurse-to-patient ratios.
