Nurses pressing ballot question to limit hospital CEO pay

The Boston Globe, December 12, 2013
The state's largest nurses union is pressing forward with a bid to require greater financial disclosure by Massachusetts hospitals and limit the pay of top hospital executives, moves being fiercely opposed by the hospital industry's trade organization. Massachusetts Nurses Association officials delivered a petition to Secretary of State William F. Galvin's office last week signed by more than 100,000 voters calling for a new state law mandating more transparency by hospital systems in reporting their finances and seeking to redress disparities between the state's richest and poorest hospitals.
