From PolitickerNJ, February 18, 2015

“Just do the best you can. That’s what the Registered Nurses were told when we were rushing through our duties on the oncology unit because there was simply not enough time in the day to get our patients through their chemotherapy infusions, EKGs, blood-draws and provide the education and support our patients needed. That was the answer when we asked for more staff." An RN at a February 9 hearing of the Senate Health Committee on setting safe nurse staffing levels by law.
