That is a lie and you're full of it.Chuck is right! It is all about more money for the union. Most of those nurses go through a two or three year program at a technical college and are unable to put together a coherent sentence. I had nurses who were supposed to administer my meds and couldn't speak English. Most of the doctors are foreigners and need translators. Even my brothers and sisters can't speak decent English. Most nurses are too over-weight to move fast enough and owe the unions their souls.

Sounds about right to me.
I would like yo add one more thought.
We are talking about a change in nurse to patient ratio. Based on other industries technology changes have driven the need for the number of people it takes to do something down .. or eliminated it altogether. The health industry is high tech, I have to believe more patients can be monitored/ looked after with technoly gains. The technology gains may also mean it does not take a highly skilled RN to perform some of the tasks they used to do.
My grandmother was an RN in the early 1900's. Her duties were like that of an LPN today. No more gains made? I know thats not true!

It doesn't matter what the "nurse/patient ratio" is. The nurses will still have to handle more then that share of patients on a regular basis to make up for the shortages of staff.

Every Nurse that Worked the Strike in MN had to have a background check BEFORE being admitted into the hospitals assigned and a current UNblemished Nursing License. Without either of these documents they were not scheduled a shift and were sent home..We are Professional Nurses and American Nurses..We did not just get pulled off the street and thrown into a unsafe situation. Granted the Computer charting may not have been what we are used to in some of the Hospitals..But Patient care does not change from state to state..As Charge Nurse of one of the Floors at UMMC Riverside during the strike. I HAD NOT ONE COMPLAINT from the Patients about the care given to them and some that wished we would stay longer, "We are NURSES, We go Above and Beyond any Profession to please people in the worst situations", and If you are not the kind of nurse that lives to help and please, then please...RETIRE..
