For many of the 213 employees who lost their jobs with the Scott County Hospital last May, this holiday season is a struggle.
"It's stressful, you try to stretch every penny," says former ER
Nurse Floyd Hutson, who started drawing unemployment benefits six months
It was the first time in his 45-year career.
He and several of his former colleagues say they're trying to hang on and wait for the hospital to reopen.
The Tennessee Attorney General's Office still needs to review the transfer of the hospital to the new operator, SM Promen.
