You work in Lucas County?
But, Lucas County IS NOT one of the ones determined to be in a nursing shortage. It was mostly outlying counties.
I forgot to make a copy of the paper, didn't have time. May not be a shortage in Lucas County, but there sure was one on my unit today.
For FY 2003, the following types of facilities have been determined to have a critical shortage of nurses:
Hospital - Any public or nonprofit private or for profit private entity that is primarily engaged in providing, by or under the supervision of physicians, to inpatients (a) diagnostic services and therapeutic services for medical diagnosis, treatment, and care of injured, disabled, or sick persons, or (b) rehabilitation of injured, disabled, or sick persons.
