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