In the news: Ask-A-Nurse line to stay live

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, September 8, 2008

The phones were supposed to fall silent. Dial tones were supposed to replace the comforting voices of nurses. Ask-A-Nurse, the free call-in nurse service run by Centura Health in Colorado, was supposed to shut down due to financial pressure this summer. Not anymore.

Calls and emails flooded in from the community since the plan to close was announced on July 9. Leaders from Centura, the largest family of hospitals and healthcare services in Colorado, met to reconsider the issue and decided to keep the service running.

A modified version of Ask-A-Nurse, which provides free advice on staying well, assessing symptoms, and finding a physician, is now live.
