Nurs­ing ex­ecs are valu­able

Modern Healthcare - - OPINIONS LETTERS -

Iam writ­ing to bet­ter un­der­stand an ar­ti­cle pub­lished in Mod­ern Health­care on Aug. 13 ti­tled “Keep­ing ex­ec­u­tive com­pen­sa­tion in check.” While in­ter­est­ing, this ar­ti­cle in­cluded sev­eral ex­ec­u­tives but omit­ted the CNO.

You are prob­a­bly aware that the chief nurs­ing of­fi­cer is the po­si­tion re­spon­si­ble for pa­tient safety and pa­tient care within each and ev­ery fa­cil­ity. To omit this po­si­tion is pro­vid­ing an in­ac­cu­rate rep­re­sen­ta­tion and di­min­ishes the value these tire­less in­di­vid­u­als put forth ev­ery day.

Can you please help me un­der­stand the ra­tio­nale of such an ar­ti­cle?
