I've been a nurse for over 12 years now. That time has been spent at major institutions, as well as smaller regional hospitals during my time as a travel nurse. From state to state, from hospital to hospital, there is no transparency for patient ratios in regards to nursing, respiratory therapists, patient care techs, or any of the other myriad ancillary departments. This has far reaching impacts on the quality of care the patients receive. My goal is to end this obfuscation.
