Doctors, patients gird for a walkout

Minneapolis Star-Tribune, June 30, 2010

With a week to go before Twin Cities nurses could walk off the job in a massive strike, doctors are rescheduling surgeries, patients are reworking their calendars and everyone in the health care community is studying the lessons of previous nursing strikes. Pregnant women due in July are calling their doctors for reassurance that all will go well. Some Twin Cities doctors are gearing up to work with unfamiliar nurses. Others are applying for privileges at non-strike facilities.
