Health Care Staffing Shortages And State House Of Delegates Sees Renovations, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, staffing shortages place an immense strain on the entire health care system. They leave hospitals and medical centers overwhelmed and unable to provide optimal care for patients.

Also, in this show, the House of Delegates chamber has turned from a historic room of legislative decision making, to a renovation worksite, where the decisions are on paint swatches and desk stains. Randy Yohe has the story.
