Why are nurses so overworked at Providence Everett?

In the last 17 years my husband and I have had to be patients at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett at different times.

The wonderful nurses worked very hard. They had to rush from patient to patient to try and get everything done. They were so overworked it was heartbreaking and patient care suffered.

My mother was a registered nurse and she never would have believed how conditions are today. These are devoted, caring medical professionals.

Some light needs to be shed on what is really going on there.
