Needed: Your short-staffing horror stories

NURSES: Please e-mail me ASAP at with your short-staffing horror stories. I’ll need your name, phone and where you work so I can verify things. See below for an example of how to send these to me. We want to start educating the general public about just how dangerously understaffed we are and how our patients suffer as a result. We need real stories from real RNs to drive this point home!

Here’s an example of what to e-mail me: On a recent shift one of my patients had to sit in her own feces for 30 minutes because we were so short-staffed. – Jane Johnson, RN, Abbott, 651-xxx-xxxx.

Please send these as soon as possible to me and please share this link and request with your fellow MNA Nurses!
