Advocacy Heals U: Nurse Advocates for Patient Safety
May 16, 2016•50 min
Deena Sowa McCollum has been an RN for 22 yrs., but until her father got critically ill (incl. a misdiagnosis that took his life), she didn't recognize some of the challenges of patient safety in healthcare--including her chosen profession! "It's a game of keeping people alive for your 12 hours, and that's not what nursing is about!" Deena is a writer for Nursecode.com, and is currently involved in patient safety projects including a Rally For Nurse to Patient Ratios held in Washington, D.C. to raise awareness for proposed safe staffing legislation. Co-host Chris Jerry, www.emilyjerryfoundation.org. Host Joni Aldrich, www.jonialdrich.com. Advocacy Heals U, the book, now available at online bookstores.
