Here's why nurses in the USA are at great #COVID19 risk. #Trump admin blocked a, "rule that wld have req'ed hospitals to create a plan to protect their employees from infections and to provide nurses and doctors with respirators."
Nurses are begging for workplace protections. The Department of Labor won’t give them any.
The lack of enforcement action by #OSHA is putting the lives of health care workers at risk, as well as increasing the chances that they’ll spread the disease to their families and communities. #coronavirus
“the hospital industry’s trade group, the American Hospital Association, has successfully lobbied Congress to block passage of an emergency infectious disease standard that would strengthen protections for health care workers on the front lines.” #PPEGATE
