10,000 Nurses To Rally In DC Demanding Safe Nurse Patient Staffing Ratios
Ten thousand nurses are expected Friday for a Capitol Hill rally demanding safe nurse to patient staffing ratio legislation.
The OPEIU Nurses Council says nurses are pressured by corporate CEO’s to do more with less, endangering patient safety. and that’s why safe nurse staffing legislation is needed.
OPEIU says so far national legislation on nurse patient safe staffing ratios has been stalled by “big money and associations that care less about nurses and their patients and more about profits.”
