Nurses shortage nationwide has reached a critical point, with some hospitals asking nurses to work double shifts. As the baby-boom generation continues to age and overall population numbers increase, the demand for nurses continues to grow -- especially in times of crisis like the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the gap between available jobs and people graduating nursing school continues to expand. Nursing ranks as the third-most in demand job in the US. How is this shortage affecting healthcare delivery? How are hospitals dealing with this shortage? What should we expect? Journalist Khalil Hachem discussed the nursing shortage with Ruthanne Sudderth, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications with the Michigan Health and Hospital Association. Dr. Alexis Travis, senior deputy director of MDHHS' Public Health Administration discussed the need for the flu vaccine this year and how it affects the Covid vaccine efforts.
