Tell Congress: Keep Patients Safe – Support the Registered Nurse Safe Staffing Act!
There’s no question about it when hospitals are inadequately staffed, patients suffer. Without safe staffing levels, patients risk longer hospital stays, infections, medication errors, falls, injury, even death.
Earlier this year, an important new bipartisan bill was introduced in the House and the Senate that could change all that for patients around the country. We need to show a huge groundswell of support for this critical legislation.
For years, we've heard from you that staffing levels are the number one concern among nurses. There is no question that optimal staffing levels result in better patient outcomes and higher nurse retention. Now, we need to make sure Congress knows it, too.
