Faced With Federal Prosecution, MountainView Agrees to Stop Harassment of RNs in Settlement With Labor Board
Date:10/5/2009

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In a settlement that is essentially a plea bargain with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which conducted a two-month investigation into massive illegal conduct, MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas, and its parent company, the giant HCA chain, have pledged to end their surveillance, interrogation, bribery, threats, and other unfair treatment of registered nurses.

Evelyn Baker, an RN in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit at MountainView who was one of many nurses who provided testimony to the board said of the outcome, "The Labor Board heard evidence from both sides and I am so glad that they determined that MountainView had to remedy its violations. It means we should be able to campaign freely without fear of retaliation."

Marissa Guiterrez, an ICU RN at MountainView agreed. "Now there can be no doubt that the election last July would have been tainted - the federal government was going to issue an indictment but MountainView choose to acknowledge their violations and settle. We prevailed and RNs will soon be able to decide for ourselves, this time without fear and intimidation."

"MountainView RNs called us this past spring because they wanted their rights, and their patients' interests better protected by having
