More Information

The Registered Nurse Safe Staffing Act will hold hospitals accountable for development and implementation of unit-by-unit staffing plans.

Requires:

  • Establishment of staffing system to ensure appropriate # of RNs staffed
  • Public reporting of staffing information

This is important because there are no standards by which hospitals set staffing ratios.  There are recommendations, but no one is being help to them.
