So monetizing healthcare is not a good thing?


It’s sad that someone needs a study to point this out. It’s such an obvious conclusion, it can only have been commissioned because someone needed to justify employing an appropriate number of staff. I’m not saying that these studies don’t sometimes throw up surprises but surely not about over-worked/stressed nurses being more likely to make mistakes.


Nurses manage patient health, if they have too many patients, they miss things. Shocking.


Hospitals are profit driven, so by understaffing as much as possible they save major $$$ which is good for them but bad for you.
