Sneak Peek 2: Former St. Luke’s Nurses on Their Recent Departure from the Company

By • September 22, 2021

Tomorrow, Idaho Dispatch will release our full interview with two former St. Luke’s nurses who quit in recent weeks.

Danny Merkes and Katie Sullivan say that there are major issues in the nursing industry, especially at St. Luke’s. Merkes says that the mandate was the final straw but other issues had built up over years that were problematic. Sullivan told Idaho Dispatch that she got the vaccine, but the lack of support from St. Luke’s for her and other nurses led her to leave.

Once the full interview is released, Idaho Dispatch will be reaching out to St. Luke’s for comment and for an opportunity to respond to the interview we did with Merkes and Sullivan.

While the full video will be available on 9/23/21 at 6:00 p.m. MST, you can view our second “Sneak Peek” below:
