Let's call this what it seems to be, this proposal weaving its way through the Legislature in St. Paul to leave it up to state government to dictate how many nurses are on duty at any given time in Minnesota hospitals and health-care facilities.

My response: I, as an ER nurse, will volunteer to work at the delivery of the child of any member of the Duluth News Tribune editorial board who wrote that editorial. After all -- hospitals should just shift nurses here and there to maintain *quality care* as they see fit. Maybe the provider also involved in that delivery should be a dermatologist ... same analogy, no? Together, the dermatologist and I will provide great quality care in a labor & delivery environment ...
You can't fix stupid, but perhaps we could enlighten the editorial board:
