Berkshire Medical Center nurses to hold protest

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – Nurses at Berkshire Medical Center will be heading to the picket line on Wednesday.

Nurses will be protesting what they call dangerous staffing levels, excessive patient assignments and “punitive work environment.”

They say a big problem is the influx of patients following the closing of North Adams Regional but BMC never increased staff to make up for it.
