Re: “Nurses, Stat

Let's talk about wages! Compare the wages (& benefits) just between the 2 area hospitals. Let alone to the rest of California. How many RNs do we loose if they can make $15 more per hour w/ better benefits & less stress?

Re: “Nurses, Stat

It is a shame that our public officials have done little to address the nursing shortage and for that matter an overall medical professional shortage in Humboldt County. It is only getting worse as more and more medical professionals are retiring or leaving the county. We need an innovative program to lure nurses and doctors and support personnel to our community. This is becoming, if not already, a public health crisis. The excuse that, "it's just as bad in other rural communities" is tiresome and a shirk of responsibility. Our public officials should prioritize public health and attend a seminar or two on the subject rather than sticking their heads in the sand.
