Pa. in need of home health nurses
An infant and a teenager with tracheostomies who cannot go home because they need 24-hour care are among the patients in Pennsylvania affected by a lack of home health nurses due in part to low pay. "We pray every day that the prospects make it all the way and get hired and make it out to work ... but it doesn't always happen that way," said Barbara Sico of Bayada Home Health Care.

Utah nurses, Salt Lake police develop new policy on hospital interactions
The Salt Lake City and Sandy police departments have adopted a new set of policies governing law enforcement activity at hospitals that was developed with the Utah Nurses Association following the arrest of a nurse in July that led to a detective's firing. The policy "gives nurses a little reassurance that they now have a strict plan, and, with that plan, the intent is that nurses will not leave the hospital in handcuffs," said Aimee McLean, president of the Utah Nurses Association.
