Quincy Medical Center prepares for nurses strike

Unionized nurses and hospital officials made their final preparations Wednesday for a 24-hour strike at Quincy Medical Center scheduled to begin at 6 a.m. Thursday.

More than 200 members of the Massachusetts Nurses Association are expected to walk off their jobs, form picket lines outside the Whitwell Street hospital campus throughout the day, and rally at noon to protest what they say are dangerous staffing levels, according to David Schildmeier, a spokesman for the Canton-based nursing union.
