Politics in Health Care | Episode 003


Welcome to The Nursing Post podcast: all nursing, all the time with Ashley Moore and Rosa Horsley. You might want to buckle up and hold on tight as we discuss many controversial topics from China’s delay in reporting the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, to healthcare workers, and working conditions here in the USA.

Timeline and Fake News

In this section we discuss the timeline from infection in Wuhan China to the US. We also discuss information in the Chinese news regarding the origin of the novel coronavirus.

US Government and delayed testing

Red tape is only the start of the many issues with delayed testing. What was the downfall of testing in the US and can we make changes to improve before the next pandemic?

Providing for Health Care Providers

Frank discussion about the way the health care providers are treated during this pandemic. From the sick pay to lack of PPE, we are asking more from HCP and they do not have what they need.

The new “Normal”:

Inequalities and lack of equipment have come even more defined throughout this process. What changes are we or can we put in place to close the gap?
