Federally or in AZ specifically, what nursing-related legislation would you like to see created/passed? Or upheld better?

Just want to get a discussion going.

For me I’d like to see Arizona’s HB2503 signed into law regarding assault against healthcare workers... hopefully soon!

Get rid of non-medical exemptions to school vaccination requirements.  Require that medical exemptions be signed by an MD, DO, NP or PA (not a naturopath).    Require yearly re-evaluation/renewal of exemptions. 

Make it easy to do the right thing, by making free vaccines available at school at the beginning of the year!  But then impose penalties on schools that do not enforce exclusions of students without medical exemptions who remain un- or under-vaccinated.  Parents who don't want to vaccinate can home-school or sign up for one of the internet-based charter schools.

Would like to see mandated clerical/unit secretary support on all intensive care units 24/7/365. No way to enter routine orders for labs, consults, answer phones, etc., and manage 2 critical patients at the same time. Preferably would like to see this on all acute care units, but let's at least start with the highest acuity areas.
