Episode 191: Healthcare

The Wednesday edition of The Rotunda Podcast follows the money on some big-ticket budget items impacting Florida’s health care industry. The Florida Hospital Association warns that cuts to hospital funding in the House and Senate’s budget could worsen staffing shortages at Florida hospitals.

Gomes also talks with Jeff Johnson, State Director of AARP Florida, who shares the concern that HB 1239/SB 804, which revamps staffing standards in nursing homes, would put profits over patients. 

Also, we hear the latest poll results showing Governor Ron DeSantis is favored to win his reelection if elections were today.
