It’s hard to forgive someone who hurts your child. Last Sunday’s article in the Los Angeles Times (“Criminal Past No Bar to Nursing”) brought back painful memories of our own experiences with a particular nurse and the California Board of Registered Nursing. The point of the Times article, researched by Tracy Weber and Charles Ornstein of Pro Publica ( www.propublica.org ), is that however serious the complaint, the state nursing board is slow to investigate, slow to act and prone to grant “probation,” thereby allowing the nurse to keep his or her license.

When our children are terribly sick or hurt we want the very best care for them. Children's hospitals save lives. Many children are cured; others have their young lives extended for many years. There will be a number of healthcare initiatives on the general election ballot on Nov. 2, and while each of these healthcare initiatives has merit, only Proposition 61 "speaks" to the health of our children and the hospitals that serve them. Proposition 61 will provide $750 million to improve and expand California's 13 children's hospitals, and it will make it possible for these hospitals to purchase new medical technologies for the treatment of the state's sickest, most seriously injured children, many with deadly diseases and conditions, like leukemia, cancer, heart defects, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and many more.
