California Attorney General Kamala Harris is refusing to investigate and prosecute the Sutter Executive and management for brining in unlicensed nurse scabs into the hospital. The CNA has called for her to take action on this but she has been missing in action. This is despite the fact that a patient at hospital has already died as a result of improper care by a scab nurse.
