Kansas City area nurses picket over nurse-patient ratio, want change

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Registered nurses from Research Medical Center protested Friday night in front of their hospital in hopes the administration will add and retain more nurses.

Research Medical Center administrators issued a statement that patient care is the top priority, and additional nurses are being hired to replace nurses who are leaving to work at other hospitals, retiring, or going to work for corporations.

The protesting nurses said increasing wages and giving nurses a portion of the tax break the hospital received from President Trump would help retain nurses

Nurses from Menorah Medical Center are attending the rally to support the nurses at Research Medical Center. Representatives from the Kansas City Firefighters Union also came to show their support
