According to an editorial in Modern Healthcare, “[contributing] to age prejudice [in the nursing profession] is the advent of new technologies like electronic health records, patient-monitoring systems and even devices driven by artificial intelligence.” And “[a]s the healthcare sector becomes more innovative, facilities often put pressure on their staff to adopt and become fluent in these technologies in a short time span.” Read the full editorial, entitled “Commentary: Ageism in nursing adversely affects patient care,” here.
