Now that the dust of the COVID 19 pandemic has settled there is another barrier to American Health Care that needs to be faced- Unsafe Nurse to Patient staffing ratios. There has been an increase burden placed on American Nurses to "Do more" with less resources, all while large For Profit and Non-profit Healthcare Companies continue to exploit their workers and profit off of their compassion. The amount of burnout I have seen in nurses with less than 5 years experience is alarming, and quite frankly, can not continue. With the rise in complexity and comorbities of the average American patient it is time for us nurses to take a stand and demand change. Our patients, our community, and our Nation deserve better. We are humans, not heroes- We deserve a safe non-hostile working environment without fear of repercussion from speaking out.  A study released in 2017 showed medical errors to be the third leading causes of death in America which is significantly higher than other developed countries. Let's continue to do what we do best and advocate for our patients and ourselves to leave that study in the past and continue to improve the health and well being of our citizens. Let's take a stand!
