Why #NursesTakeDC 2018? Janet Michaelis RN, @jgmichaelis #NursesUnite #NurseUp

Why #NursesTakeDC, Janet Michaelis RN?

An obvious fact: CARING THOROUGHLY FOR PATIENTS TAKES TIME, yet bedside nurses are too often saddled with impossible workloads we're expected to perform to perfection, while being pushed to push the patients out ASAP. So-called “quality standards” reward "throughput" over thoroughness, demeaning and endangering staff and patients alike.

Meanwhile legacy professional  organizations, like the ANA, have spent decades equivocating about the subject of mandatory staffing, allowing cruel and dangerous  practices to persist and fester like chronic wounds. 

Instead of listening to professional lobbyists, it’s time that legislators hear from us directly for a change!
