How do common American hospital practices traumatize patients and their nurses? What experiences erode trust between the sick and their healers?  Join host Brenda Gazzar and Kathy Allan, RN and board-certified holistic nurse, for unique insights into healthcare-acquired trauma and what we can do about it.  Her years of training in PTSD and Developmental Trauma, combined with her experience working as a nurse at a major California hospital, inspired her to create a program to address systemic trauma in health care. How can hospitals restore a sense of confidence among patients and nurses that their needs will be met? Where can nurses and other providers learn strategies to release trauma? How could Medicare for All make a positive difference, not just in the patient experience but also in the community?
