California nurses protest lack of swine flu equipment
The California Nurses Association plans protested in San Francisco in the wake of a Sacramento nurse's swine flu death last month. The union wants hospitals to provide better masks, equipment, and protocol to protect nurses from further sickness. The union says nurses across the state are reporting difficulties getting the masks recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and having them properly fitted to be airtight.
