More Washington, DC, hospital workers fired for being blizzard no-shows

Washington Post, March 4, 2010

Washington Hospital Center fired eight more employees after they failed to show up for work during last month's snowstorms in Washington, DC. The hospital announced that it has also rehired three of the 16 workers it had terminated. Hospital President Harrison J. Rider III announced in a letter to staff members that after a review of employees who did not make it in during the record-breaking snowstorms that hit the region between Feb. 5 and Feb. 11, it was concluded that 15 nurses and six members of the support staff should be terminated.
