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!
