Help!! Nursing debate!

  1. Hi everyone, I have to be involved in a nursing debate on Monday March 31, 2003. My issue is to debate against mandatory patient ratio. I'm having a hard time finding research to support this issue. I can surely understand why I am having a hard time finding information to support this side, too. If any one can provide any useful research for me I would greatly appreciate it.

    The California Nurses Association is very supportive of the staffing ratios. Their website is

    The American Hospital association is opposed to it, and made themselves loud and clear when the issue was being debated in California. They can probably give you reasons why it's not a good idea.

    Good luck!
