Emily Troyer, RN: Health care workers need the Legislature to fix the staffing crisis

Published by THE SPOKESMAN-REVIEW on 12/19/21 (Source)

I know it won’t happen overnight, but if the Legislature steps up and creates safe staffing standards, I truly believe that we’ll keep more health care workers. We’ll be able to keep those new nurses that I have seen bail out because it’s just too scary and stressful to work under the conditions the staffing crisis has fueled. I even believe that some of my colleagues who have left will come back to the bedside, where they will continue to work beside their colleagues to save lives.
