The California Nurses Association and National Nurses United announced a one-day strike at eight hospitals next week, including the Bay Area hospital where a patient died in September under the care of a nurse hired to replace striking union nurses. The walkout, scheduled for Dec. 22, could involve as many as 6,000 nurses, 4,000 of which work at Bay Area hospitals, and the other 2,000 at 420-bed Long Beach Memorial Medical Center in southern California, according to a union news release.
