Nurses at San Mateo County’s public hospital complained Thursday that budget cuts are taking a toll on the quality of care at the facility and leaving them ill-prepared for the infusion of new patients expected under federal health care reform. About 50 sign-toting nurses rallied outside San Mateo Medical Center in the hope of attracting taxpayer funds to pay for more staffers and equipment.
