Stanford to cut striking nurses healthcare benefits? That will teach you to ask for mental health benefits in labor negotiations! What is Stanford thinking? I was there recently for my son's heart surgery. They are rolling in dough! Everywhere is construction and amenities of the highest level. It appears their coffers and reserves are overflowing. Hospitals everywhere are having nurse shortages. It's clear that Stanford could pay more to keep the vital services nurses provide. I want the nurse treating me to have full mental health coverage. That affects me, too. If there is a strike, I don't want the nurse treating me to come back to work with undiagnosed medical issues that could be passed on to me. I signed the petition and I'll be seeking my healthcare elsewhere until Stanford settles this mess.
