Good Morning, Readers!

I’ve been thinking a lot about innovation lately, specifically the power nurses have to inspire change within healthcare. Nurses understand the weaknesses in processes better than anyone, which is why we are the perfect choice for coming up with meaningful solutions to these problems.

What innovative ideas do you have for nursing and healthcare? Let me know here and don’t forget to fill out our innovation survey to let your voice be heard.

How Overturning Chevron Affects Healthcare

The U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1984 Chevron decision, mandating that courts exercise independent judgment in statutory interpretation rather than deferring to the administrative agencies that hold expertise in their respective areas. The ruling may affect healthcare by increasing legal challenges against agencies such as HHS, FDA, and CMS and slowing rulemaking processes. Agencies overseeing technical and scientific areas might face more scrutiny, potentially affecting regulations on Medicare drug pricing, laboratory tests, staffing standards, and more. A Mississippi judge has already used the ruling to block the Biden Administration’s new healthcare anti-discrimination rules for transgender Americans.

Producer Finds Purpose in Nursing

Shannon Penney left her freelance advertising career during the pandemic to become an RN at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Despite working twice as much for the same pay, she gained a sense of purpose in her new role, feeling a duty to give back to society for the privileges she’s had. Working in nursing has also exposed her to the economic disparities within healthcare, which she never knew in the advertising industry. Learn more about Penney’s story here.

Horse Therapy Helps Neurology Patients

At the San Giovanni Battista Hospital in Rome, therapists are using horses and ponies in hippotherapy to help neurological patients regain movement and confidence. The program, which has treated over 600 patients in 2023, supports patients who suffer from many different types of neurological disease. It combines traditional rehabilitation with the psychological benefits of connecting with animals. Patients, including some who are recovering from a coma or have Parkinson’s disease, are reporting increased balance, mobility, and self-assurance through these sessions.
