Sutter Lock Out Update | Cameron Harris on Type 1 Diabetes | October 8-9, 2011 |Show 424
We check in on what is happening at Sutter Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland, California. Over 23,000 nurses went on a one-day strike against Sutter Health here in Northern California. At issue are cuts that impact patient safety. Sutter Health locked out nurses for an additional 4 days. During that lock out a patient died from what is described as a “medical error,” while under the care of a 23-year old replacement nurse. We have an update on this unfortunate tragedy.
And whiz kid Cameron Harris joins us. Cameron is our resident expert on Type 1 diabetes and has his own podcast show called In Range. On the show Cameron gives great tips and information on how to live a healthy life with Type 1.
