Care Lacking Due to Nurse Shortage

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, December 5th, 2009

nurseworkingShortages of healthcare professionals have compromised access to care in their areas, some CEOs report. Forty-six percent said access to care has been compromised by physician shortages, and eight percent said access has been compromised by nurse shortages. This may not seem like a big number, until one realizes that 8 out o f 100 people do not get the care they need because of the nursing shortage. This is unacceptable.

I have lots of proven ideas. Please contact me.
