More than 920 Jackson Memorial Hospital employees could be out of a job by the end of the month. The hospital gave out pink slips last week and some employees argue the affects are already apparent. The hospital now faces a fight from unions and questions over patient care.
Miami-Dade County Commissioners will meet Thursday in a special meeting to discuss impending layoffs at Jackson Health System. Regardless of their decision, CBS4 has learned even experienced nurses who are not on the chopping block are jumping ship for private hospitals.
Twenty-four hours after news first broke that Jackson Health System was laying off 920 people, many of those impacted by the firings are not going to go quietly.
