"Hero to zero. That's the mood at Putnam Hospital Center, said Nurse Maura Rooney, after the New York State Nurses Association was notified last week that 11 Putnam nurses, including a 30-year veteran, would be laid off. Those impacted were notified on April 7. "The morale of the hospital right now is in like disbelief,"" said Rooney, a 15-year nurse at the hospital in Carmel. "And so low, because we did everything that we could possibly do for our community and the hospital. We were heroes. Now they're laying us off."
