Nurses Demand Sheriffs' Discharge From San Francisco General Hospital

  1. A mob of nurses and doctors dressed in their scrubs gathered in front of the San Francisco General Hospital demanded city healthcare clinics and hospitals boot the sheriff’s deputies who secure the premises. The sheriffs, some nurses said, make patients — specifically patients of color — feel unsafe.
  2. Dr. Maisha Davis, a Black physician who works at a clinic in the Fillmore said the police killing of Floyd in late May eventually prompted her to write a petition on June 7 that asked Colfax and other city leaders to remove deputies.
  3. Nurses cited their own safety concerns and created a dueling petition that amassed more than 4,000 signatures. Other nurses at the General alluded to incidents where deputies intervened when patients in the psychological ward or emergency department endangered staff, and some nurses threatened to strike if deputies were removed.
