Like death and taxes, however, thats a reality that very few of us are lucky enough to 'escape'. Health care professionals welcome the PATIENT comments that go DIRECTLY to legislators, CEO's, media, executive directors, etc. I think its easy for legislators to dismiss the cry from nurses themselves as "consider the source" material. When citizens begin to effect the bottom line ( w/ their votes, letters, calls, etc.), I believe we will see change and I'd like to see nursing poised and ready to be the proactive force that we're equipped to be. Am truly sorry for the experiences that you're having, but I'm very glad you feel that you can share them w/ those whom some may consider the poster children of health care ills, and am feeling very positive that what we need for change is more input similar to yours.
