Re: Apologies

Yes it is legal to deny nurses their breaks...most hospitals, at least
in this part of the country, have had nurses exempted from the federal
Fair Labor Standards Act which covers such things as breaks and
overtime. It is one of the reasons so many nurses around the country are
unionizing. But even a union contract only goes so far...all the
hospital has to do is say that patient care needs that shift dictated
that no one could take a break and they are covered.
