North Adams hospital shuts emergency room

Attorney general launches probe

North Adams Regional Hospital evicted dozens of nurses and supporters from a dining hall Friday afternoon and closed the emergency department — its last remaining operation — after a state judge amended a restraining order that had required it to remain open.

The shutdown came amid growing disagreement and acrimony among hospital leaders, employees, and regulators, who couldn’t agree on a plan to keep the emergency room open through the weekend.
