Press Advisory: Vigil Tonight to Support Nurse Attacked at University Hospital

Candlelight Vigil in Support of a University Hospital Nurse Violently Attacked

Tonight, Nov 28th
6:00 PM
12th Ave. and Bergen St.

 

As a union of health professionals, HPAE’s first priority at this moment is caring for our colleague who was attacked Sunday night as she left University Hospital after finishing her 12 hour shift in the labor and delivery unit of the hospital.  This is a highly experienced nurse who has worked at the hospital for 25, who has dedicated her career to caring for mothers and babies yet became a victim who was senselessly attacked.

Her union coworkers will gather to support her and her family during this difficult time while working on establishing safety standards to prevent this from happening to anyone else.
