NICOLE GIRTEN Daily Montanan
St. Peter’s Health ended its contract with union consultant Niles Commer after nurses discovered a document created by a consultant containing their personal information, and it felt to them like a “low blow.”
The hospital described the document as having “sensitive information” about nurses.
CEO Wade Johnson apologized in an email obtained by the Daily Montanan and received by nurses at St. Peter’s Health following the document’s discovery.
“I feel the approach and content contained in the document our consultants created is completely unacceptable,” Johnson said in the email.
The health organization is conducting an internal investigation into the incident, according to a statement from St. Peter’s to the Daily Montanan.
Commer was hired by the hospital system after nurses at St. Peter’s voted to hold a union election next month to decide whether to join an existing nurses union, the Montana Nurses Association.
