Our Nurse Manager just got fired for trying to keep our Med-Surg floor staffed to adequately care for our patients. Can you believe it? Here in California, the nurse to patient ratio law is
passed but just waiting for a period of public comment. All she was doing was trying to do was staff according to the proposed ratios. She was very well liked by all the docs, she was a great patient advocate and the best nurse manager I've ever had (and I've seen a lot come and go!) Hats off to you, Madolyn---You left with your head held high! Shame goes to the Nursing Administration; what goes around comes around, right?
