Treatment SOS: Nurse to Patient Ratios and Patient Safety

September 23, 201651 min
Guest: Deena Sowa McCollum has been a RN for 22 years, however, actively participating in her father's care showed her the flip side of medical care...including 3 delays in care and a misdiagnosis that eventually took his life. As an advocate to raise awareness for National Nurse to Patient Ratios (that can result in preventable medical errors), Deena was part of a rally in D.C. with other nurses: "We take pride in our profession and an oath to advocate for our patients. We see daily how profits are more important than patient safety and we want to make a change." Host: Joni Aldrich, www.jonialdrich.com
