Description

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette investigates a growing trend in hospital care towards replacing nurses with less-trained, lower-paid aides. Using unlicensed aides may result in injury or death for patients when aides are asked to perform duties they are not equipped to handle. Many hospital administrators insist the money saved by hiring aides is an economic necessity; however, after surveying several hospitals the Post-Gazette found the hospitals either did not save any money or did not save as much as expected. (Feb. 11-14, 1996)
