Training has begun and will continue until everyone is trained to handle both areas. Physical Updating of 6th floor which is where this unit will be housed is taking place now. Nurses should never perform non-nursing functions. VISITING HOURS HAVE CHANGED: Contact a Local Officer or your Labor Rep. if you feel this is affecting patient care delivery.
