For everone who responded to fabulous ideal & Nursing shortage

  1. I heard a congressman from texas today on the radio talking about the smaller hospitals struggling financial situation. He wants to take the money from the surplus from medicare cut backs and re-invest them back in to the health care system.

    Yesterday I posted the e-mail adresses to the 2 presidental canidates under aternative to march. If you do not wish to e-mail either of these to canidates and would like to e-mail your congressman go to
    http://congress.nw.dc.us/cnn-interactive

    after you enter your zip code it will give you te names with the option to e-mail

    This is an election year and it will only
    become an issue if we make it one.
    Please post here if you respond. I e-mailed them yesterday with my concerns of unsafe patient care.

    Hi Jackie,
    I think that your idea is great as are other posters that are contributing to the "Fabulous idea!!!" topic by bunky. I have as well emailed my congressperson regarding quality customer services and related topics. Perhaps a combination of several strategies is what is needed to satisfy every nurse that wants to contribute in some way to bringing attention to unsafe staffing.

    Jackie you are a veritable fountain of email address info aren't you! I did email
    Al Gore at the address listed and got a nice form letter telling me to watch his web site as he may respond to my questions in one of his town hall talks. I couldn't however reach Georgie Boy at the email address you listed. You're doing a GREAT job! Keep it coming!
