Saturday morning, nine doctors and nurses at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center packed gauze, rubber gloves and other medical supplies before catching an afternoon flight from LAX to Miami en route to the Port-au-Prince, Haiti, airport today. They plan to assist doctors from the University of Miami, first at a field clinic at the airport and later, perhaps, in neighborhoods. This will be the first trip to Haiti in 25 years for Claudel Thamas, 53, a critical care nurse. Several of his cousins in Port-au-Prince are still missing after the quake.

Registered nurses at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to ratify a tentative contract that provides an average 21% wage increase over three years and improves retirement benefits. The agreement, hammered out Sunday by negotiators for the hospital and the California Nurses Assn., is the first for Long Beach Memorial's 1,300 registered nurses, who began negotiations with the hospital in February and staged two one-day strikes this fall.

Nurses at two Huntington Park hospitals owned by the same physicians group have threatened to strike because they say their paychecks have bounced, in some cases twice, the California Nurses Assn. said. About 80 nurses at Community and Mission hospitals in Huntington Park could participate in the strike, set for March 11, if their concerns about the owners' ability to meet payroll are unresolved, said Charles Idelson, communications director for the union, on Tuesday.

Competition to hire nurses in California is so intense that some headhunters routinely make cold calls to nursing stations at rival hospitals, desperate for recruits. Others are sending out direct-mail pitches that read like time-share come-ons. Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, for example, offers nurses a $200 gift card just to come in and take a look around. And in one extreme case, a nurse-staffing firm is using a $10-million Newport Beach mansion as a lure.
