Jeannette Moore from Harrison Medical Center has been an RN for 45 years and has seen the issue of staffing get worse and worse.

“For [hospital administrators] staffing or productivity decisions ultimately come down to dollars and cents... For those of us doing the work at the hospital... the issue is overworked Nurses and the safety of our patients.”

The Patient Safety Act, that passed through the Legislature this last year, empowers RNs and hospital staffing committees to be a part of the decision making process and hold hospitals accountable to safe staffing plans.
