Hidden camera violated nurses' rights


A hidden surveillance camera installed in a break room for nurses at Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville is among federal labor law violations a judge says the Fremont-Rideout Health Group undertook.

The California Nurses Association said the surveillance represents Fremont-Rideout spying on nurses in an effort to see such matters as who may be reading union brochures.

"We never found out if there was audio or not. We asked," Liz Jacobs, spokeswoman for the nurses association, said Tuesday of the camera surveillance. "A break room is where you should be able to have personal discussions."
