[Article 26:1] Facts and Hearsay in Private Duty Nursing. — February, 1927
Creator: Schouten, Irene Burch
A recent study in New York has shown that from 30% to 50% of private duty nurses are entering other fields, a situation that seems typical of other parts of the country. The article touches on the poor pay, the costs of private duty, the long hours of duty, no increases in salary for experience, the dangers to her own health. As yet, despite study by physicians, no solution has been found although some suggestions have surfaced. Among these are "centralization of nursing resources under one clearing house," group nursing, an hourly nursing plan. Also, however, there has been a decrease in demand for private duty nurses. The conclusion is that a solution must be found.
