After reading “Union: Nursing staffs too low at 3 CHS hospitals” [News, June 9], I agree with the complaints about shortages of nurses and non-nursing personnel at St. Joseph Hospital in Bethpage.
I spent every day for two weeks in June 2015 visiting my brother at St. Joseph, and I saw a short-handed and poorly managed facility. My brother was uncomfortable and suffered terribly his entire stay. He pleaded for us to get him out of there.
Nurses seemed overworked and never happy to hear our concerns.
