The Washington State Nurses Association does not represent the nurses at St. Michael but told KIRO 7 they’re not surprised something like this happened.

“This is an extreme example of things that are happening across our state and across our nation right now,” Jayson Dick, from the nurses association, said. He said ideally the ratio for nurses to patients in an ER should be one to four.
