California nursing board seeks to triple enforcement staff
Los Angeles Times, July 28, 2009
Managers of the California Board of Registered Nursing are seeking permission to triple the size of their enforcement staff and immediately boost licensing fees to act more quickly against errant nurses who potentially pose a danger to patients. These and other actions were recommended to state officials in response to a newspaper investigation that reportedly found that it takes the nursing board more than three years on average to act on complaints of sometimes egregious misconduct.
