Not having an RN on duty at all times is criminal and dangerous. It is already ridiculous that many nursing homes have just one RN for 90 plus residents. It is unfair on the staff and the residents!!

I work in the industry and experience first hand how staff are worked to the bone and the cost cutting that goes on in this industry and am disgusted that the government would even think that this is a move in the right direction... perhaps miss skinner has shares in the industry???

On RNs and above have the necessary training and skills to deal with complex health issues and emergencies. The real test is would you like your parents to be in a nursing home with new RN on duty?

I am a registered nurse and have worked 30 odd years as a registered nurse , seven of which were in a nursing home. The elderly desperately need trained medical attention around the clock to avoid early death and unnecessary suffering. It is barbaric and medieval to turn our backs on the vulnerable and clearly the needy. This would have the potential to be genecide of a large proportion off our society. I am horrified and ashamed to think of what would happen to our elderly and the society that turned their backs on our elder statesmen and women.
