Ask any ICU nurse at St. Joe if they were surprised about the firing of the PM shift nurses and they will unanimously tell you they were not. Unfortunately, many of the folks upset about this camera issue are the same people who kept silent about what they knew was occurring for years. Now they have the nerve to raise a stink over videos placed to answer a specific question - are patients safe in the ICU at night? Instead of looking at what they themselves might have done to address their own culture of silence regarding their night shift colleagues, they would rather divert attention on what an administration was forced to do after traveling nurses 'blew the whistle'. This article is a fine example of the CNA looking to blame "administration" for doing a job that they themselves should have done long ago (police yourselves). For a group so focused on patient safety, it appears that this situation is like the pot calling the kettle black.
