I am impressed with these nurses' determination and grit to fight for their beliefs. Sorta a David and Goliath story.

It is saddening to hear this especially when it may be water under the bridge. I dunno.

You are right, Fred. David and Goliath is a good illustration.

But with all the things happening in health care, I don't think this is water under the bridge. The forces of consolidation and the various structures that push centralized care and centralized decision-making are still there. The push to reduce doctors' autonomy is still there. Patients will pay the price in myriad ways. We were just able to see it better with Covid for various reasons; but it occurs in numerous other contexts, and it will increase over time unless providers break away or there is some other type of systemic improvement.
