Am I Patient #6? - Part 2

Season 2, Episode 4 -

In the second of a two-part series, “Am I Patient #6?”, UFT President Michael Mulgrew talks with the union’s point person for nursing, Anne Goldman, about why the UFT is fighting for legislation that would set mandatory staffing levels for surgical, emergency, critical and acute care units. Too many New York hospitals cut corners on nurse staffing, with most patients not knowing their risk of injury or death rises when a nurse-to-patient ratio increases — by even one patient — beyond 1:5.
