The Washington State Nurses Association says that hospitals are putting their priorities in the wrong places.

"I do understand that they are under a lot of pressure but so are the staff," said David Keepnews, Executive Director of the Washington State Nurses Association. "So are the nurses and other staff who are providing care and I think that aside from the numbers themselves and the amount of salaries it's a matter of where hospitals are putting their priorities."
