Largely due to the work of nurses around Pennsylvania, and the efforts of PASNAP, the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals, nurse-friendly legislation was introduced in the Pennsylvania General Assembly this past legislative session which would have set safe staffing ratios in hospitals and placed a ban on mandatory overtime for PA nurses. Unfortunately,
these bills never received a full vote in the PA Senate or House.
But it's not over. The General Assembly reconvened on January 7th , and these important bills will be assigned new bill numbers and reintroduced in both houses.
