Nurses Advocate Limiting Patient Load
(2007-10-25)
(wfcr) - Nurses from across Massachusetts gathered at the statehouse today to advocate for a bill that would limit the number of patients a nurse could care for. They say hospitals from Springfield to Boston are understaffed and patient safety is at risk. WFCR's Kevin McNicholas has more.
