My wife brought home an information from the Nurse Alliance of Florida regarding high patients to nurses ratio. The legislators will re-introduce the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act on March 2nd. The legislation would require hospitals to meet minimum nurse-to-patient ratios, ban mandatory overtime and protect nurses who speak out about unsafe working consitions. You can visit their web site for more info: http://www.nursealliancefl.org/
My wife is going to sign the petiton and mail it back. Too bad I'm not a nurse yet (working on it) so I can't sign but I'm more than happy to post this info here and hope this helps.
