“Safe Staffing Now!” was the overriding cry heard from nurses from all over the country, including Alaska and Hawaii, and beyond (Toronto, Canada, Bahamas Israel, and Peru,) who stopped to talk and share their patient safety concerns at the MNA and NNU tables at this year’s huge Critical Care Nursing Expo at the Boston Convention Center May 21-23, 2013. An estimated 7-8,000 nurses attended the 3-day AACN (American Association of Critical Care Nurses) 2013 NTI (National Teaching Institute) and Critical Care Exposition in Boston.

There was much talk about the better , safer working conditions now in California since the passage of nurse-to-patient staffing ratio legislation and also much agreement on how we need safe patient care staffing ratios in Massachusetts as well as across the country.
