    If I ever have a loved one in any hospital, I will make damn sure they have a NURSE with them at all times.

    Patient to nurse ratios should be FEDERALLY mandated, just like good ole health insurance is.

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.

      Senator Boxer has authored a bill for national ratios - and other good things like statutory protection for the nurses role as a patient advocate and lift teams to reduce injury rates among nurses.
