Nurses Week is also a time to reflect on the nursing profession and how we can work together to improve working conditions as well as quality patient care. Staffing ratios are one of the biggest issues we all face in any field, but especially true in hospital care.
Advocate for Nurses
Nurses Take DC is a collaborative effort to educate the public and to persuade legislators to vote on safe staffing ratios. Alene Nitzky Phd, RN, OCN, shares her experiences at the 2018 event on her blog. Learn more about the grass roots organization collaboration and their efforts to get S1063 and HR 2392 the Nurse Staffing Standards for Hospital Patient Safety and Quality Care Act of 2017 passed.
Additionally the National Nurse for Public Health Act S1106 and HR 1651 needs your support and help to educate the public and your legislators. Recent hurricanes, earthquakes, fires and other natural disasters serve to remind us of the need for unified nurse leadership to ensure the best quality care for victims and their families. This year’s flu season was a harsh one and the flu vaccine was not all that effective. Nurse leadership in the area of public health information and preventative care is essential to containing costs, meeting patient needs and preventing complications from acute and chronic illness.
Investigate these grass roots efforts working diligently to promote quality health and safety issues for all. Get involved and advocate for the passage of this important legislation. Stand up for nurses!
