A week-long sit-in at the headquarters of a nurse's union in Albany yielded success. That's according to Bruce Darling, head of the Center for Disability Rights and Roberta Wallach, of the Regional Center for Independent Living, who took part in the protest.

They were among 20 people urging the union to support a state law that would allow non-nurses to administer certain medical services. The goal is to allow more people with disabilities to be able to remain in their homes and not be moved to institutions. The union agreed to the activists' request.
