Nurses optimistic of their future

Medford, Ore.- Nurses from Providence Medford Medical Center say they are optimistic about reaching an agreement with the hospital.

This comes after nurses claim a staffing shortage is hurting patient care and resulting in them being overworked.

A group of them met with administrators from the hospital late into Thursday night hoping to reach an agreement on a new contract.

While nurses walked away from the meeting without a finalized contract, they say there has been significant process.

At this point there’s not a set date for both parties to meet again.
