Calling for an End to the Government Shutdown

Jan 22, 2019 | Nurse-Led Care News |

On January 17, the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium signed onto a letter with Trust for America's Health and 280+ other public health organizations calling for an end to the government shutdown. The letter seeks to drawn attention to the negative impacts on basic health protections, increased environmental risks, increased economic instability, and risks to the most-vulnerable Americans.

The letter in part states:

With the partial government shutdown nearing the four-week point, the undersigned organizations call on Congress and the President to immediately reopen the government to minimize any further impact on the public’s health and wellbeing. Several agencies’ ability to provide critical services, ranging from food and environmental risk inspections to health services, have already been drastically reduced or are threatened if the shutdown continues. We fear a prolonged shutdown will cause needless suffering and have long-lasting health consequences.
