    "...hospitals hired consultants who sold them the fantasy that they could deliver high-quality nursing care for less money."

    Those high priced consultants got their money and ran while nursing was left holding the proverbial bag. And what are we left with? A broken health care system which will need more high priced consultants to fix.

    Hmmmmm.......

    I think instead of hiring high priced consultants to figure out how to cut costs while still providing quality care they should form consulting groups from current employees. After all we know what is needed and we also have plenty of idea's for cutting costs. Just my oppinion.
