Ellen In Medicaland: True Stories of How I Fell Down Medicine's Black Hole (Book) - 3/22/2011 7:11:36 AM
Ellen Kagan has reached many thousands over the last fifteen years through the media of radio and cable television. Her tales from the healthcare twilight zone will now continue to bring compassion and hope to wider audiences through print. A study published recently reveales that hospital care injures almost one in five patients. Bureaucratic efforts have failed to improve patient safety after a decade of trying. Only an enlightened, engaged and outraged population will establish and enforce high standards of care, including a limit on the number of patients an RN may care for at one time. Ellen has worked on the cutting edge of the movement for that standard. Organized nursing embraces her efforts and together we continue the fight for enactment of such staffing and other standards as a right of everyone encountering our profit-driven healthcare non-system.
