Registered nurses at Carondelet St. Joseph’s in Tucson, Ariz. will hold a rally and be available to media on Monday, March 13 to highlight their patient safety concerns, including short-staffing and management attempting to silence RNs who advocate for safer standards, announced National Nurses Organizing Committee/National Nurses United (NNOC/NNU) today.

“At St. Joseph’s, nurses have been leaving in droves, and those who are left are constantly working under impossible conditions. Health care should be about health, not money,” said Kathi Powell, an RN in the medical-surgical unit.
