Hospitals in Oregon and southwestern Washington have a legal responsibility to ensure the nurses and medical technicians on staff are licensed and qualified to provide the highest levels of medical care. Unfortunately, hospitals often find it expedient to reduce staff to a bare minimum, or hire nurses who are less experienced. When mistakes happen because of a nurse error or administration mistake, the patient suffers.
