I really appreciated the article “Healthcare in the outlands”. The article is spot on with the nursing needs in major cities and rural areas. In Montana, I say we are geographically challenged. In our healthcare sector, we work with direct care staff and nursing care managers to meet clients’ care needs in their homes. Client and family expectations continue to be high. Having the clients’ homes as the care setting adds another challenging element, and there is a supply and demand issue that is difficult to address.
Thank you for getting the facts reported for proper planning in all healthcare regions and settings.
