I'm not a nurse nor do I want to be.
Thank goodness I'm in good health. But, if I were in need of medical care at a hospital; I'd feel more comfortable knowing the staffing is appropriate to attend to my needs as they arise and not having a nurse make the decision that my needs are less dire than another patient. Plus, any person that has to wipe feces off the scrotum of an 80 year old man at 2 o'clock in the morning deserves to be paid more than $40/hr.
