Nurse Shorts | Questions for Casey, and Michael Lighty on the Affordable Care Act
A look at the concerns about The Affordable Care Act from those who work for hospital corps.
This week Michael Lighty, Director of Public Policy for California Nurses Association, joins us to talk about why he thinks the Affordable Care Act is “Bad Medicine” for nurses. The article, “Bad Medicine” recently appeared in the National Nurse Magazine and states, “…the biggest health reform of our lifetime does little to rein in healthcare corporations and insurers. Instead, it shifts even more in costs onto workers who can’t afford it and, at the same time, threatens the practice of registered nursing.”
