What:  The Waiting Room Premiere  

When:  Friday, September 28 at 7:40 p.m.

Where: Laemmle's Monica 1 Theater, 332  2nd Street  Santa Monica, CA 90401

The film will be followed by a panel discussion about solutions to the healthcare crisis moderated by California Nurses Association/National Nurses United.

About the film: The Waiting Room, directed by Peter Nicks  is a character-driven documentary film that goes behind the doors of a large public hospital struggling to care for a community of largely uninsured patients. The film weaves the stories of several patients – as well as the hospital staff charged with caring for them – as they cope with the complexity of the nation’s public health care system, while weathering the storm of a national recession.

About The Nurses Campaign to Heal America: NNU RNs have played a key role in the debate over the future of healthcare in the U.S. We believe that only a fundamental change—guaranteeing healthcare as a human right through promoting an expansion and improvement of Medicare to cover everyone will solve  our nation’s healthcare crisis and create a more humane and affordable system with one standard of quality care for everyone.
