Tell your state legislators: Support the Safe Patient Care Act!
It's time to start the biggest push ever for Michigan legislators to pass the Safe Patient Care Act. This 3-part package is urgently needed to stop hospitals from overworking and understaffing RNs. Nurses all across Michigan are raising their voices for this plan, which will improve safety and quality care for patients by:
Requiring hospitals to follow safe patient limits (RN-to-patient ratios) in all units at all times;
Limiting mandatory RN overtime;
Forcing hospitals to make their actual RN-to-patient ratios public.
Send an email now to show legislators that this matters to their constituents and that nurses want them to take action when the bills are introduced in the coming weeks.
