    Nurses picket outside Washington Hospital Center.

    When you are unhappy with contract negotiations, what do you do? Picket!

    Tuesday night dozens of nurses took to the streets outside Washington Hospital Center to show their unhappiness with contract negotiations.

    Members of Nurses United picketed for three hours at the corner of Irving Avenue and First Street Northwest.

    The union says nurses are concerned there is not enough staff to offer adequate care for every patient.

    The current contract expires in two weeks.
