Oh dear it is almost Thanksgiving! We at Nurse Talk wish all of you a wonderful holiday with family and friends—and DO remember—laughter is the best medicine! Yes of course we all love our families—but—we know too much about each other and that can lead to—well—o.k. fill in the blank. We say that with love and affection.
Massachusetts RN Karen Higgins joins us. Karen is a good friend of ours and she always takes time out of her busy schedule to talk with us. Karen weighed in on the Financial Transaction Tax, a.k.a. the Robin Hood tax that nurses and others all around the world asked the G-20 leaders to adopt.
And we’ll talk with the author of Critically ILL: A 5-Point Plan to Cure Healthcare Delivery. Dr. Frederick Southwick, author, teacher, respected researcher and decades-long medical practitioner, is an advocate for change to our country’s current healthcare practices, which cause thousands of hospital deaths and complications each year.
