    Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA): How far?

    This is agreat article to bring about awareness on this important topic. In an effort to save money, hospitals and similar entities prefer to replace "expensive" RNs with most cost effective ones. What they do not take into account is the lack of experience of the less experienced which can translate in probable misses and centinal events in patients. Then, in addition to unfavorable patient outcomes the hospital is faced with litigation from patients/families. Empowering nurses and making them aware of their rights as well as possible legal venues they can consider is another important approach which can have a dual benefit: empowiring older nurses to actively protect their rights, but also sending a strong message to employers that they can be faced with consequences.
