Join your fellow nurses in Springfield IL on Tuesday March 13, 2007.
Show your support for SAFE STAFFING LEGISLATION HB392 and SB605.
Meet with your Representatives and ask for their support in this important legislation. Your stories need to be told and your voices must be heard! Since November many nurses have met with Chicagoland Representatives. They listened to us as we walked (make that ran) them through a day-in-our-lives. Since then, we now have 9 co-sponsors in the House and 4 co-sponsors in the Senate. We need to keep the momentum going! Show your support by coming to Springfield, calling or writing your Representative. Ask them to support this important legislation.
The IHA is lobbying hard against any kind of staffing ratios. In 2006, several nurses and I have had the opportunity to meet with the IHA to discuss Safe Staffing Legislation and their response was "we do not support staffing ratios of any kind." Who represents you?
