RNs Join Council Members, Community Leaders to Demand Safe Patient Staffing Bill in District of Columbia

WASHINGTON - In an effort to dramatically improve care at District of Columbia hospitals, registered nurses represented by National Nurses United joined with D.C. Council members and community leaders at a press conference this morning to announce the introduction of the 2015 Patient Protection Act.

Modeled after a successful California law, the 2015 Patient Protection Act sets specific limits on the number of patients RNs can care for (nurse-to-patient ratios) in Washington, D.C.’s hospitals.
