12:02 pm
solution to the burnout and exhaustion, their feelings. we want to make nursing attractive and for people to stay, and stanford was really gotta step up their game in order to do that line say many of their colleagues have quit or retired early, and now the hospitals are severely understaffed. calling in nurses on their days off. nurses are caregivers, and so we give ourselves and we give up our families. we give everything for the patients in the hospitals. that's a behavior that needs to change if we're going to keep nursing safe. stanford healthcare leadership doesn't acknowledge these issues . we thought that we would come together and we might have disagreed about how to approach the solutions, but we thought we would agree there was a problem. and they're denying there's even a problem. stanford chief nursing officer dale beatty says burnout is a national issue and the hospital is listening to its nurses. we do know we've had some areas that have been more challenging than others, and we recognize and acknowledge that
12:03 pm
but overall we've done a tremendous job of providing support, he says. during the pandemic, stanford never broke the nurse to patient ratio set by the state. and nearly 75% of the time nurses exceeded that ratio on a ship by ship bases. there could be times where it gets challenging. it changes its dynamic on a shift to shift basis. uh so i want to acknowledge that back, but on the overall we've had very strong staffing package offered to the nurses union generous with top of the market wages. we believe we have a very competitive package. we appreciate how hard the pandemic has been, and we recognized additional support. uh you know at have offered that through additional proposals, but nurses say it's not enough. union hasn't announced an end date for the strike if it continues to may, 1st nurses will lose their employee health benefits for the whole month. they can choose to continue through cobra. that's the intimidation they are
12:04 pm
threatening our families they are threatening the most vulnerable among us nurses with cancer nurses with medically vulnerable family members. those are the people they are targeting, and that is shameful . in palo alto, amanda quintana ktvu fox two news covid-19 cases are on the rise. nearly a third of the country is experiencing a substantial increase in cases area is not immune ktvu greg liggins tells us but local experts say about this latest wave cruise ships have been a microcosm of how quickly covid-19 spreads. just this month, the ruby princess returned to port in san francisco, following two separate outbreaks that combined more than 200 passengers stricken with the virus. there's no question that we're in another wave. the question is what that wave is going to look like statewide data shows cases are far below their january peak , regardless of vaccination status, yet they are climbing san francisco now faring the worst statewide with a seven day
12:05 pm
case rate of 6% well above the 3% level considered worrisome, but at the same time, you know when i look at my own hospital, the ucsf we probably have about 10 people in the hospital with covid, um compared to about 100 and 50 in the middle of january , and nobody. the last time i checked was on a ventilator, so things are looking really different. hospitalizations typically lag case rates by a week or two and are currently well off winter peaks. as for san francisco, dr chen hong says two factors may account for the city's climbing case rate. one being tourists returning, possibly bringing covid from elsewhere. we have one of the densest populations, actually so that once infection set up shop , it's pretty easy and efficient to spread that around. so that's the second reason both doctors caution. covid can quickly humble anyone making sweeping predictions. but given the increased public protection, either through contracting the virus or through immunization
12:06 pm
they anticipate the current wave will likely be more of a ripple than a monster where we are right now, an argument can be made that it's not going to be really much of a wave this time. just in terms of the nature of it only gradually increasing, as opposed to suddenly increasing another thing. both doctors agree on despite mask mandates ending, they say it's still a good idea to wear a good mask when you're inside densely populated spaces. greg liggins, ktvu fox two news. teachers in oakland have voted to go on strike this friday. the president of the teachers union, says the district's plan to close or consolidate a number of schools is really the reason for the upcoming strike. ktvu is james torres as the story. as of now. that strike is planned for friday morning. that's when a number of school teachers from a number of school campuses here in oakland will walk out of the classroom for the day. students and parents follow the typical monday routine at lincoln elementary school in oakland, many aware a one day strike is
12:07 pm
looming. whatever it takes for the school to get right. i guess they have to do what they need to do. the oakland education association, the union representing oakland, teachers, says union members voted to go on a one day strike this friday . they are protesting the district's decision earlier this year to close or consolidate 11 schools. the district says the schools in question are under enrolled in the plan will save millions of dollars. but some parents, including misty cross, who is the co founder of the group, west oakland moms for housing? say the plan unfairly targets low income black and brown communities. this district has failed on doing equity analysis reports. they have, um not done them in a way that it shows that these schools deserve to be closed via farias is a teacher at ccp, a one of many planning to protest we're not going to stand by to let this continue to be a policy. um but disproportionately impacts,
12:08 pm
especially that disproportionately impacts are working class black and brown families and especially families with special needs. the district sent an email to the union saying in part even the threat of again depriving students of instruction, let alone an actual deprivation, especially without legal justification will only further hurt students. the district was not able to offer any more comment this morning. union leaders say oh, usd is violating an agreement, saying a decision like this requires a year's worth of conversation. and while some parents disagree with the school closures, some also hate the idea of teachers walking out of the classroom. you would hate for your son to look for sure, for sure. for sure. he loves school. he loves to interact with the kids. he likes to do. his projects make airplanes and stuff like that. so he loves going to school reporting in oakland. i'm james torres, ktvu fox two news. new in the mayors of nine of california's largest cities are joining together to voice their concern over solutions to the
