Franklin County prosecutors concluded their six-month investigation into fired Mount Carmel doctor William Husel by charging him with 25 counts of murders. But what about the nurses and pharmacists who worked alongside Husel?
A study shows the country is on the verge of a doctor shortage, but one lawmaker in Ohio says she has a plan to fill the gap. The new bill, HB 726, is just the latest attempt to expand the authority of advance practice nurses.
Often, when nurses are at the end of their shifts, they will be asked if they can stay late. Sometimes it’s not a request but an implied order. Now, a proposed Ohio law would ban hospitals from forcing nurses to work overtime.
