Registered nurses at Barstow Community Hospital staged a one-day strike from 7 a.m. Tuesday to 7 a.m. today to protest ongoing patient care concerns and rights of registered nurses, as part of a National Day of Action by Community Health Systems RNs.

Nurses were protesting the hospital’s ongoing refusal to address the nurses’ concerns over patient safety, inadequate staffing and substandard wages, according to Charles Idelson, communications director for National Nurses Unified.
