Hospital nurses from French Hospital Medical Center and Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center protested Wednesday in San Luis Obispo.

The protest was part of the National Day of Action to Save Lives during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

The nurses say it's part of the "National Nurses United Groups" push to demand leaders and the government to take immediate action to save lives.

The push encourages the Senate to pass the Heroes Act, which is a bill ensuring domestic production of protective gear.
