Thank you for sharing that article David. I agree that nursing shortage have always been and always will be a problem unfortunately. During the pandemic, our hospital hired a lot of nurse travelers and we are so grateful for them. After dealing with very critical covid patients, we needed all the help we could get because it was just physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting. We dealt with so much loss that it wasn’t healthy anymore. The great thing about it is that nurses from other units such as pre/post procedural or PACU nurses helped out in our units the best they can. We also had a prone team which helped a lot during the first surge when we were proning a lot of our patients. But yes much is still to be done to solve the nursing shortage problem.
