(UNDATED) - Fifty nurses from 50 states are in Washington, urging lawmakers not to cut $13 billion in Medicare.

They say it is needed for patients using home health care and hospice.

Paula Long is a registered nurse at Sullivan County Community Hospital in southwest Indiana.

She is among the group in D.C. Long says the cuts could mean closure of facilities like the one where she works.
