Nurses are our first line of defense in the hospital. If someone has an allergic reaction to medication, has sudden pain, or has problems breathing, they are on the phone with their physician STAT.

Currently, they are forced to work with a high patient to low RN ratio as well as poor working conditions. When this happens, patients are the ones who suffer.

For instance, they get infections, bedsores, are readmitted due to getting sicker, are not adequately educated on how to care for their injury/illness, and don’t get the emotional support they need either.
