WCVB gets the statement from State Police about an incident at the Logan Hilton early this morning at which Tufts Medical Center claims locked-out nurses and supporters threw coffee at a bus taking replacement nurses to the hospital: State Police say nothing was thrown and the protesters quickly and willingly dispersed when troopers told them to because they didn't have a permit.

The Boston Business Journal reports the two hospitals, each affiliated with different universities, no longer plan to merge.

By - 12/14/14 - 9:50 am

Paul Levy, who knows something about failing hospitals, having become CEO of Beth Israel just as the state wanted to shut it down, takes a look at the proposed merger of Boston Medical Center and Tufts Medical Center - and how to keep the merger from simply becoming " a case of strapping two leaky lifeboats together, leading to a faster demise than if they remained apart."

All the doctors in the world upstairs could do nothing to revive the outbound Orange Line train that expired at Tufts Medical Center around 8:20 a.m.

This was after a Green Line trolley expired at Copley and various trains heading to South Station took a break in their morning routine thanks to switch problems.

A fire in an electrical room just beyond the inbound platform at Tufts Medical Center brought the Orange Line to an abrupt end this morning.

The Boston Fire Department reports a 15,000-volt line began to smolder around 10:10 a.m. Firefighters had to bring in dry-powder extinguishers to put out the fire - and several "smoke ejectors" to clear the smoke out of the station.

The station was turned back to the T around 11:50 a.m. Service on the Orange Line resumed shortly after noon - although the Tufts Medical Center stop remained shut.
