How to find the best nursing school in California

CAIRO — A nursing home in California that has been plagued by nursing home closures has been the target of a viral campaign that has included calls to boycott the facility and the closure of several nursing homes.
The National Association of Recluse Nursing Homes released a video Wednesday to encourage its members to boycott nursing homes that close due to poor health care.
The video includes a scene in which a man talks to a woman on a cell phone about the closure at the nursing home where he is working, saying, “It’s going to be a long time before the patients come back.”
The man said he is “trying to get the people who are working here to come home, because I have to make sure that my family and I don’t die in there.”
The nursing home was the target last week of a campaign by the U.S. National Nurses United (NNU), which called on nursing homes to close because of a lack of staffing.
In a statement Wednesday, NNU President Randi Weingarten called on other nursing homes and other hospitals to stop the closure.
“We are in the midst of a nursing home closure in Southern California.
The community is not happy with this, and this is hurting the patients, the families and the employees at this facility,” Weingart said.
She said that the nursing homes in question have been shuttered because of insufficient staffing.
“The American Medical Association has called on all states to provide nursing homes with sufficient staffing to keep their patients safe, and to protect nursing homes from nursing home closings that are driven by a lack and need for nurses,” she said.
The video was produced by NNUs’ California branch, the California Nurses Association, and is an animated, narrated, 30-second film that features clips of the nurses in the videos.
The videos have been shared more than 200,000 times on social media.
