TheVoiceOfJoyce Nurses go on strike in Minnesota as negations continued over their contracts. They’re understaffed and requested a pay increase, claiming hospital administrators are well compensated and refuse to acknowledge, patient care is suffering. During a period, when 768 nurses left the profession, patient care declined 33%, characterized by adverse health outcomes. 15, 000 nurses are ready to strike. From what I’ve read and heard around the country, nursing staff is short on personnel and they’re unable to administer proper patient care. Why doesn’t America have a standard of care for all facilities? A known ratio of patient to nurse care? This standard of care would be applicable to hospitals and nursing homes, allowing healthcare professionals to concentrate on care giving, increasing patient healthcare positive outcomes. .
