Call Your Legislator Today for Support on MNA /NNU Safe Staffing Bill

01.24.2013

Call your legislator to ask for their support of safe staffing levels! Legislation has just been filed that directs the Commonwealth to set safe limits for the number of patients a nurse can care for at one time. Not only is this safer for patients and nurses, studies have shown it would also save precious health care dollars. Please give your legislators a call today at 617-722-2000 and ask them to sign on to The Patient Safety Act. State Representatives can sign on to House Docket number 1577, sponsored by Representative Christine Canavan, and State Senators can sign on to Senate Docket number 754, sponsored by Senator Marc Pacheco. The deadline for signing on to the bill is quickly approaching, so call TODAY!
