Los Angeles Times

About a 100 USC University Hospital nurses and medical staff picketed outside the hospital entrance Tuesday to demand improved staffing, a protest that came amid contract negotiations between administrators and two powerful unions. Evelyn Koch, a registered nurse who said she has worked at USC-affiliated hospitals for more than 25 years, used a megaphone to rouse the lunchtime crowd on San Pablo Street, east of downtown Los Angeles.
