We All Deserve More From Health Care.
Talk to anyone these days about health care, and you’ll hear the same thing:
“The system is broken.”
Hospitals are regularly over capacity – the public is even being told not to visit emergency rooms unless they’re seriously ill. Long term care beds sit empty because there are no staff. Patients go without critical care in the community and the backlog of surgeries and procedures continues to build.
The truth is, our health care system is beyond broken.
For years, Registered Nurses (RNs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have raised the alarm. Now, our health care system is losing some of our most highly skilled and educated professionals at an alarming rate. With skyrocketing rates of burnout, these highly trusted professionals are walking away from full time jobs with pensions and benefits. Some are leaving for different career fields, while others are making the switch to privatized health care options.
But there is something you can do about it.
Raise your voice and show your support. Tell government that you care about the ones who take care of us in our most vulnerable times.
Help end the nursing crisis and protect patient care.
