Patients suffer when workloads are increased

I am a Registered Nurse who is disabled and can no longer work. I have worked during previous funding cuts to health care.

The effects of these cuts impact not only the patients but the nurses also. With increased workloads the patients suffer because we are not able to provide the same level of care and time to care for our patients. This results in longer hospital stays for the patients, more complications such as bedsores, and increased sick time for nurses.

The government doesn’t care about the public. We nurses treat our patients with the same care no matter who they are and we believe that every patient deserves high quality care.
