One erroneous quote from the week before.

ERRONEOUS QUOTE: In the article, “‘It is strictly not safe’; local nurses picket St. Elizabeth working conditions”, published Nov. 16, the Courier-Herald erroneously paraphrased nurse Kelly Patton saying the Emergency Department was staffed only with travel nurses. Patton said, “If there’s a lot of travelers scheduled, [St. Elizabeth] bring[s] them in and we all stay home. Many times, the hospital is staffed by travelers, and the regular staff is at home.”
