Why #NursesTakeDC 2018? Jeannette Hand,

Why #NursesTakeDC 2018? Jeannette Hand, RN-BC @JHandRN #NationofNurses #NursesUnite #NurseUp:
“Why do I participate in #NursesTakeDC? I do it for my patients! I work in long term care and rehab where patient loads depending on shift and facility can be as many as 60 patients for one nurse! This is beyond stupendous!
While I work day shift, and am not burdened with that many patients, I need to support those nurses that do. On day shift, I have had 20+ patients. Actually, when I worked solely long term care, I was expected to care for 30 patients!”
Nurses in hospitals and Nursing homes need to have mandated a maximum number of patients they can care for. It is a matter of patient safety and quite frankly a matter of patient dignity! That is why I have participated and will continue to participate in #NursesTakeDC!”

About nursefriendly

Decided early on that there was a need for reliable healthcare information on the Internet. People more and more look online for reliable sources for Drugs, Medications, Diseases, Conditions, etc. Nurses and those interested in Nursing need quick access to associations, schools and helpful resources. The resulting site was http://www.nursefriendly.com Thought about all the questions I've been answering for patients, family members, neighbors and coworkers. Came up the with goal of providing easy access to resources on the web through our Nursefriendly Network of sites. Patients or family members, nurses or even doctors can come to my site and within a few clicks find nurse selected resources with the information they need. A website I've found, is much like a newspaper. As long as people are reading (or visiting), advertisers will pay to have their message seen. That's the income model I've chosen. To date, it's been a consistently profitable while providing a needed service to the public.
