Nurses Report Dangerous Working Conditions Persist as U.S. Heads into Flu Season

HeadlineNov 16, 2020

A new survey by National Nurses United found that hospitals are still failing to provide adequate PPE and workplace protections. Nurses say hospitals are unprepared as the surge is only expected to get worse during the flu season and the healthcare industry’s pursuit of profit is at the center of its failures. Nurses also report mental health struggles related to the pandemic.

Meanwhile, North Dakota’s Republican Governor Doug Burgum said infected but asymptomatic health workers should still treat COVID-19 patients at hospitals.
