Former and current nurses at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital on Saturday protested for the facility to be renamed after recent news about the Facebook data leak earlier this year.
Protesting nurses say some patients are reportedly fearful that their own privacy may be in jeopardy since the 147-year-old hospital is named after Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook CEO, and his wife Priscilla Chan.
“Had we known what we know now, perhaps we wouldn’t have accepted the funds from Zuckerberg,” John Avalos, the former supervisor told the paper.
The demonstration was led by Sasha Cuttler, a nurse who covered Zuckerberg’s name on a sign at the entrance of the hospital, The Times reported.
One nurse who works at the hospital told the paper that the Zuckerberg name “scares” patients.
