NURSES IN ATTEMPT TO GET MANDATED STAFFING RATIFIED
Nurses still strive to meet necessary demands with the virulent nursing shortage, as healthcare providers, organizations, and institutions stress for more nursing personnel.
In an article from Associated Press (AP), dozens of registered nurses (RNs) across New York, gathered at the state Capitol Monday asserting the Republican-led state Senate to pass legislation that would require hospitals and nursing homes to ensure there are enough nurses on duty to care for patients.
These RNs have come together to lobby lawmakers to approve a bill that would order minimum staffing levels for nurses.
The measure was again anticipated to pass the Democrat-controlled Assembly later Monday, but it has yet to be approved in the Senate after years of attempts.
RNs and their supporters say the Legislature needs to establish a limit on the number of patients a nurse is responsible for at any given period.
Opposite parties say mandating nurse staffing ratios is needless and would increase health care cost by striking inflexible standards on hospitals.
Erudite Nursing Institute™ supports these nursing advocacies to approve mandated staffing, in the midst with the prevalent nursing shortage.
Any individual in the said situation, would react the same as patient numbers are difficult to contain with multiple tasks and issues to accomplish.
