Attention Nurses! Please go to the Opinion section of The Deseret News (May 9, 2015) and read op-ed article by Kathleen Kaufman regarding the impact that a traumatic injury can have on patients, their families, and their medical insurance. Print out a copy and share it with your state legislators. Whether or not they support healthcare access for the uninsured in Utah, they need to really think about what a traffic accident could do to them, to you, to anyone...
