Sacramento Could Eliminate Nurse Program for Sick Kids
The Sacramento County public health nursing program is slated to be eliminated under proposed budget cuts that will take effect July 1. Through the program, two nurses regularly visit families with medically fragile children and assess development, nutrition and growth. The nurses also can teach parents how to feed their children and administer basic medical care.
