TheVoiceOfJoyce A healthcare system already stretched, encountered a Pandemic with Nurses short handed and ready to take care of the sick and dying. However, their tour of duty exceeded their capacity to have meaningful lives and put their families at risk. They’re burnt out. They’re leaving a profession they loved. What can be done? Stop the race to the bottom. Hospital aren’t profit centers and nurses aren’t expendable. Time to rethink pay scales, leaves of absence with pay ,for stressful months of work. Train more nurses and pay them like the professionals, they are! The entire Country needs a week of mourning. At least , 850,000 have died during this Pandemic. There’s too much stress for everyone to absorb. This Thanksgiving, give thanks, for being one of those who survived. !
