I suspect this could have been achieved without the clamor of last, best offer. At any rate, good show.

Yawn .. who cares?

Dragging the public into their private affairs (meaning the CRONA people) was typical of people who have no respect for the public. CRONA sees Palo Altans as simply tools to be used to advance their political agenda, when it's convenient. It's really difficult to see how all of this nonsense maps into "better nursing".

In the long run, all they have done is increased the cost of a hospital stay, and provided nothing of benefit in return.

I am a nurse at another hospital in the area that has not been able to reach a fair contract and have had one imposed on us. This lack of respect from the Administrators of a hospital for the rank and file leads to horrible morale.

I am glad that they found a way to break the impasse.

The Stanford nurses have very good working areas, and support. If they don't like it, go to another hospital that you seem to believe is better! and work there!
Your pay is excellent, and have various helpers other than nurses on the units to support you as well.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
