Eliminating Physician/CRNP Collaboration = SkimpCare
Your state lawmaker may soon consider House Bill 100/Senate Bill 25, which would allow certified registered nurse practitioners (CRNPs) to practice independently in Pennsylvania without the vital safety net of physician collaboration - even though more than 90 percent of Pennsylvanians want doctors and nurses to work together in a coordinated manner to ensure that patients get the care they need.
You wouldn't send a football team onto the field without the leader of the team, a quarterback, so why should legislators think it's okay to take the leader of the health care team, a physician, out of a patient's health care? That's SkimpCare.
Contact your State Representative NOW and urge them to listen to their voters and protect patient safety by opposing House Bill 100 and Senate Bill 25.
