Our (Nursing) Most Pressing Concerns About Healthcare @hospiceheroes @icoachnurses @wwwrnorg @theyoganurse #nursefriendly


Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: I feel we have disconnected our healthcare professionals from their patients and colleagues by denying them quality continuing education that would empower them, expand their knowledge base, and connect them with others who share their vision. We need quality education and support for healthcare professionals and consumers!!!

I see the most pressing concern in the nursing profession and healthcare is the assurance that the consumer is getting what they are not only paying for, but what they deserve as they put their trust in others to care for them with utmost skill.

    "The most pressing concern for me is the problem with Managed Care Organizations (MCO's) and government cutbacks and having to do more with less, in less time. This permeates all settings, from acute care hospitals, nursing homes, home care, even impacting care being provided in physician offices. More patient teaching is expected and higher tech care is becoming routine, yet there is less time and personnel available to appropriately meet these needs."

    Lucille "Lou" Addington, RN, CLNC, Florida:"We do medical-legal consulting for attorneys, insurance companies and HMO's, and private individuals. Presuit investigations and affidavits. Expert witness location. Special interest in vaccine damage cases and long term care/elder care issues. My associate and I bring a combined 42 years of professional nursing practice to our cases."


    Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: Concerns about the profession include:

    • Continued RN staffing issues. There continues to be a slow response/lack of concern and/or understanding by the medical community/government entities of the need to assure safe RN/patient ratios in all health care and health related settings.

    • Recruitment of future RN's. I am of the opinion that recruitment has to begin with the very young. I personally was exposed to the hospital setting at a very young age (6-7yr.) when I sometimes tagged along with my grandmother who was a pink lady at our small community hospital. I can remember wanting to be a nurse well before I entered middle school.

    • Lack of professionalism by current RN's. In 21yrs of nursing, I have seen way too many nurses who do not act in a professional, helpful, and courteous manner and who do not treat people (especially other nurses) with respect. I suppose this is another reason why I have chosen to start my own business as I can ensure my business will treat clients the way I want to be treated and provide services in a professional manner.
    Concerns about healthcare:
    • Rising costs of medical care and pharmaceuticals.

    • Lack of readily affordable healthcare (outside of the ER's) and support resources for the elderly on fixed incomes who do not qualify for Medicaid or other government programs.
