Most voters foresee increased patient waiting times if shortages are not addressed

A majority of voters (54%) think it is very likely that if the current shortage of nurses and other health professionals in California is not addressed it will increase the time patients have to spend waiting to see a doctor or to get treatment in a hospital. Another 30% think this is somewhat likely, while just 11% say it's not too or not at all likely.

State and local elected leaders receive low marks rated for their handling of the problem

When voters are asked to offer their impressions of the job their state and local elected leaders are doing to address the state's shortage of nurses and other health professionals, about three times as many (38%) say they are doing a poor or very poor job as think they are doing an excellent or good job (12%). Another 29% offer a fair job assessment, while 21% have no opinion.
