"If they would give us information about problems with patient outcomes or any issues that would cause poor patient care we would be glad to investigate."

One neonatal nurse, who doesn't want her name used, says she has given the Health Department information about the risk of poor patient care.
She says staffing regularly dropped below the required two and a half to one ratio, down to 3 or 4 to one.
