North County Times

Nurses complained to hospital directors Monday about what they said are problems with the working environment at Palomar Pomerado Health hospitals. Palomar critical care nurse Sue Phillips took the podium as a public speaker before the public hospital board’s monthly meeting at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido and said managers have not done enough to ensure that special “lift teams” that help nurses move patients in and out of beds are available.
