So I just wanted to get some thoughts on this topic, I'm doing a debate with a team and we have discuss the 2 sides to nursing staffing ratios, so far what I know:
government regulated staffing ratios for specific units (have already)
local hospitals who want to regulate their own staffing ratios (some what to switch to this),
I know california has been having this big thing on their staffing ratios, I just wanted to know thoughts comments about arguments, any place that has articles about this specific subject, I have to debate on why we should keep it the way it is.
