Staffing at Oklahoma hospitals is being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. KOCO reports that 50 registered nurses have left their jobs at Stillwater Medical Center since the beginning of the year and RN turnover is more than 20-percent. Stillwater Medical Center's Dr. Woody Jenkins attended yesterday's Healthier Oklahoma meeting and noted that morale among RN's is low due to unmatched workloads and exhaustion.
