The May issue of nursing 2001 reports the following:
"Legislation introduced in the U.S. House of Representative would bar employers from requiring licensed health care employees to work more than 8 hours per day or more than 80 hours in 2 weeks. The bill wouldn't restrict voluntary overtime and would still allow mandatory overtime in certain situations, such as natural disasters. The bill doesn't apply to physicians. We'll update you on the bill's progress"
Guess they actually "listened" to things that nurses were saying!!
