Bay Area Nurses Call For Hospital Name Change


A group of nurses at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital want the Zuckerberg name removed because of Facebook's privacy scandals.  They tell "The New York Times" patients are wondering how well a hospital with that name on it is protecting their privacy and say the name "scares" them.  San Francisco General was renamed for Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, in 2015 after the couple gave the hospital and trauma center a record donation of 75-million dollars.  About a dozen nurses staged a small protest last Saturday and put blue masking tape over the "Zuckerberg" on the welcome sign.
