Pennsylvania Health Department: A lot of complaints from Temple

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 23, 2010

The deputy secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health says her agency has investigated "a lot" of complaints about Temple University Hospital since 1,500 nurses and allied health workers went on strike there March 31. But because of reporting delays she blames on federal regulations, potential patients will not be able to see what those investigations found until at least the middle of next month. The union representing striking workers has raised concerns that replacement workers at Temple will affect quality, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
