Nurses take care of us, but who's taking care of them? With the outbreak of SARS, many have become ill or are in quarantine, and many others are taking on long hours and additional responsibilities in patient care. And, this at a time when the profession was already in crisis over severe shortages and unstable working conditions.

This show contains a Your Health item "Sjogrens Disease".
