to tell the committee to vote YES on HB 5384, “An Act Concerning Reports of Nurse Staffing Levels.”
Current law requires hospitals to work collaboratively with their caregivers to create a staffing plan. This bill would make the collaboration more meaningful because the reports would have to be submitted to the state public health department. It would also require hospitals to report actual daily staffing levels on a quarterly basis, which would create more transparency on a situation that is directly related to patient care.
for the bill language and to track its progress in the legislature.
Safe staffing saves lives. Help us hold our community hospitals accountable to this very important standard today.
