Tufts Says Buses Carrying Replacement Nurses Were Attacked
Date Posted: 17/Jul/2017
Nurses and supporters were on the picket line Sunday in front of Tufts Medical Center.
 
As Tufts Medical Center nurses and their supporters began a fifth day of picketing outside the hospital Sunday, some protesters allegedly confronted replacement nurses at hotels miles from the facility.
 
About 5:30 a.m., as replacement nurses hired to care for patients during the historic nurses’ strike were preparing to go to work from their hotels, groups of people yelled angry messages at the nurses and bus drivers, including, “Nurses, go home!” according to Brooke Hynes, a hospital spokeswoman.

The protesters appeared at a hotel near Logan International Airport and another in the Boston suburbs, where the substitute nurses were being put up, Hynes said, and tried to block buses preparing to take the nurses to the hospital. At one hotel, a protester threw coffee at a bus driver, she said.
 
The hospital said police had to be called to “restore order.”
