Medical Center to have nurses cleaning up, @VUMChealth @WFSBnews, #nurseup:"The Channel 4 I-Team has
learned some Vanderbilt nurses will now be in charge of cleaning
patients' rooms, even bathrooms.
Sanitized environments in
hospitals are critical to a patient's health, but the new cost cutting
measure has at least one nurse concerned.
"Cleaning the room
after the case, including pulling your trash and mopping the floor, are
all infection-prevention strategies. And it's all nursing, and it's all
surgical tech. You may not believe that, but even Florence Nightingale
knew that was true," said a hospital administrator to staff in a video
obtained by the Channel 4 I-Team.
