Bravo to Theresa Brown, RN, for writing an eye-opening Op-Ed, exposing the dangers faced by patients when not enough nurses are on duty. The New York Times published her opinion on Sun., Aug. 18, which puts this issue front and center, where it should be. Read the OpEd here.
We encourage you to read the entire piece, along with the Comments Section AND participate in the online discussion.
Brown mentions one piece of legislation being considered by Congress to address the issue of poor staffing levels, and it is important to know that efforts are being led by nursing communities to advance other bills on the federal and state levels as well.
