Henry June, a medical, surgical, and trauma nurse, as well as an expert witness, shares his insights on the current state of the nursing shortage in the United States, highlighting the projected shortfall of nurses and the challenges faced by new and experienced nurses alike. He outlines the effects of the pandemic on nurse retention and describes the increased patient load that nurses are facing in the midst of the shortage.
Henry also explores potential solutions, such as remote monitoring units and incentivizing nurses to become educators. As an LNC, he explains that in the search to determine liability, one must also consider whether understaffing contributed to nursing errors and lists pertinent questions to determine this factor.
