"The Diane Rehm" show (April 12) on the radio covered the nursing shortage, and nurses concerns. Great program.
"Working conditions deplorable....Conditions for patient care... intolerable...staff completely insufficient". You can listen on Real Player to the program in it's entirety (about 50 min.) The phone calls from nurses were excellent. I urge all nurses to listen to what is happening. Become active in making sure the changes that are coming (and they are coming) are what we want. If we don't keep speaking out we cannot expect changes to benefit us.
Tomorrow the Senate Subcomittee hearings are on so look for those also. Get involved!
