need link re study on nursing care vs good surgeon in better outcomes

  1. I saw this study, not too long ago, that in terms of good outcomes good care was equally as important as the skill of the surgeon. I couldn't find it in the news archives, or on a search. Anyone else see this and remember where?

    If you find it let me know because someone told me on this very board a few weeks ago that I was out of bounds for saying something similar to that.
