Striking Temple University Hospital nurses question fill-ins' credentials

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 5, 2010

Striking registered nurses and health professionals called on Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia to document credentials of the 850 temporary workers recruited to tend to patients since the walkout began March 31. The union said it had received "dozens of reports" of "problems with patient care," Maureen May, president of the Temple Nurses Union, said. Sandy Gomberg, Temple's chief executive officer, said that the hospital's 400 doctors and 3,000 nonstriking employees were caring for patients as always and that the union was attempting to "frighten" the public and distract the focus from the "real issues" of wages and benefits, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
