A Democratic-Backed Bill Would Limit How Many Patients Ohio Nurses Can Care For At a Time
NPR - 5 days
A new bill at the Statehouse would put limits on the number of patients one registered nurse can care for. State Sen. Michael Skindell, a Lakewood Democrat, says the goal is to make sure registered nurses aren’t caring for more patients than they can handle at one time. “Nurse-to-patient ratios are based on the seriousness of the condition being treated or medical procedure being performed. Ohio currently has no limits on how many patients a nurse can care for at any one time.” The Ohio Hospital Association’s John Palmer says his group opposes a mandated-staffing ratio because all nurses and patients are different. The bill would only affect registered nurses – not licensed practical nurses or medical assistants. And it’s facing an uphill challenge because it doesn’t have widespread bipartisan support at this point.

This Town, My Town, My Loss
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When Mark Leibovich's This Town first hit this town in mid-July, I got my copy and was all set to interview Mark and do a fun piece about how awful so many people in Washington are. But instead I ended up spending 20 days in the ICU at George Washington Hospital with his book in my tote bag. I was with my husband of 30 years, who died on August 3. I mean, poor Mark Leibovich. This shocking event in my own life has now put his nicely written but snarky book about the corruption of media and government in Washington in the same posting as the death of John Palmer. Because like many other great reporters, John spent a good part of his long career with NBC News here in Washington, and lived a life with values very different from those Leibovich glibly assigns to so many in "this town." How do I balance writing something that was going to be fun, funny and a little mean with the loss of the kindest and best person I ever knew? This is all about tone. Tone and intent, really. Oh, an ...

Is This A Better Way Of Tracking Happiness?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Scientists are increasingly finding ways to use mobile technology to capture snapshots of our daily behaviors and mindsets. In the latest demonstration of such, researchers at Princeton University have found that cell phones can be useful tools in recording our dips and peaks in happiness in relation to our different environments. A challenge of conducting surveys, particularly ones where you're calling people in their homes and asking them about their feelings at that moment in time, is that their answers to the questions may differ depending on their environment. “People spend a significant amount of time outside their census tracks,” study researcher John Palmer, who is a graduate student in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at the university, said in a statement. “If we want to get more precise findings of contextual measurements we need to use techniques like this.” The study, published in the journal Demography, included 270 study p ...

John Palmer Remembered By NBC News
Huffington Post - over 3 years
WASHINGTON (AP) — John Palmer, the longtime correspondent for NBC News who died Saturday after a brief illness, was remembered by former colleagues as a hardworking, gracious reporter who moved easily from war zones to the White House and who brought a reassuring voice to news broadcasts. Palmer, 77, died Saturday at George Washington University Hospital of pulmonary fibrosis, according to his wife, Nancy. "God bless John Palmer, tireless reporter, always a gentleman, loving husband and doting father," former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw wrote on Twitter. He said the death of his friend of nearly 50 years was "heartbreaking." Palmer worked for NBC from 1962 to 1990, and then returned to the network from 1994 until 2002. He became a familiar face to viewers of the "Today" show during much of the 1980s, delivering the news in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner at a time when the program often led in the ratings. NB ...
