Los Angeles Times

Hundreds of nurses from Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Miller Children’s Hospital staged a one-day strike Thursday over failed contract negotiations and staffing issues.

Armed with bullhorns and whistles, the nurses stood by the main entrance of the hospital on Patterson Street and Atlantic Avenue. Many waved pickets signs that read: “If nurses are outside, something’s wrong inside” and “Safe staffing at all times.”
