Hospitals are not required to meet a minimum standard of care and nurses are concerned. We started a petition, asking Minnesotans to help nurses protect patient safety in Minnesota by supporting a minimum standard of care, and in just three short weeks, hundreds have responded. You’ve even shared some stories about your own personal experiences fear for your own or a loved one’s safety because too few nurses were on duty.
A growing body of research says nurse staffing levels have a significant impact on patient outcomes, hospital infections, nurse retention and hospital financial performance.
Nurses say it is time for a statewide standard of care. Help nurses protect the safety of every patient in Minnesota.
