Nurses demand better staffing for better care

Registered nurses rallied citywide Thursday over what they say is a staffing crisis.



Nurses from Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx were among those who staged what they called an informational picket demanding change in order to provide better care. They were joined by politicians and community supporters. 



The nurses say the day of rallies came after months of negotiations over staffing levels. They claim the nurse-to-patient ratio is unacceptable and unsafe.



Overall, thousands of nurses from 14 different hospitals across the five boroughs took part in the staffing protests.
