Beverly Hospital

Congresswoman Judy Chu, with other elected and community leaders, will speak out in support of the nurses at Beverly Hospital, who have been subject to unlawful tactics in their fight to guarantee safe and patient care. Beverly Hospital has endangered patient safety and violated California state law by not meeting safe nurse-to-patient ratios, and by floating Registered Nurses to units for which they have not been properly trained. Honored guests include the following:

• U.S. Congresswoman Judy Chu
• Maria Elena Durazo, Secretary-Treasurer, LA County Federation of Labor
• Dr. Ed Hernandez, California State Senator
• Father Mike Gutierrez, Pastor of St. John the Baptist Church in Baldwin Park and Board Member of CLUE (Clergy & Laity United for Economic Justice)
• El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero
• Pico Rivera City Councilmember Gustavo Camacho
• Beverly Hospital Registered Nurses
