RN Lisa Myers on Safe Ratios in Vegas and RN Susan Dean on Volunteering with Faith In Practice | July 30-31, 2011 | Show 417
Casey and Dan talk with RN Lisa Myers from St. Rose Hospital in Las Vegas. Lisa and thousands of fellow nurses have gone through a protracted negotiation process with their hospitals since the nurses voted unanimously to join National Nurse United over 15 months ago. At issue? Safe nurse-to-patient ratios.
And Kaiser RN, BSN Susan Dean joins us in the studio. For the past seven years she’s gone to Guatemala with a team of doctors and nurses from around the U.S. with the organization Faith in Practice (http://faithinpractice.org). During a week’s time the team performed over 80 lifesaving medical procedures. Susan is also a volunteer with Operation Access, an organization that provides medical care to the uninsured right here at home in the San Francisco Bay Area (http://www.operationaccess.org).
