Nurses Recommend Nurse to Patient Ratios

We as a country spend a lot of our federal tax dollars on medical care. Medicare, medicaid and the  affordable care act (Obamacare) are large parts of that spending.

Much of that care money is spent on the hard work that our country’s nurses provide. But they are human beings and not robots in an assembly line. There is a physical limit to what they can do to deliver optimal care to patients.

The image above is their recommendation on what the nurse to patient ratio should look like. Here is what they further say:

National Nurses United(NNU) — the largest union of registered nurses in the country — is proud to announce the introduction today in the U.S. Senate by Sen. Sherrod Brown (S.1063) and in the U.S. House of Representatives by Rep. Jan Schakowsky (H.R. 2392) NNU-sponsored legislation setting specific safety limits on the numbers of patients each RN can care for in hospitals throughout the U.S.

The bills, both known as the Nurse Staffing Standards for Hospital Patient Safety and Quality Care Act, establish minimum RN-to-patient ratios for every hospital unit at all times. They also provide whistleblower protection to assure that nurses are free to speak out for enforcement of safe staffing standards.
