Holyoke Medical Center Joins the Coalition to Protect Patient Safety

We invite you to get involved and help stop this costly and rigid proposal.
Apr 26, 2019

This November, Massachusetts voters will consider a ballot question that would institute government-mandated nurse staffing levels at all hospitals across the Commonwealth. If approved by voters, the law would require every hospital to adopt rigid, one-size-fits-all Registered Nurse-to-patient ratios at all times – regardless of a hospital’s size, location, or the needs of patients.

Concerned by the many negative impacts this scientifically unsound and costly law would have, Massachusetts hospitals, nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals have come together to form the Coalition to Protect Patient Safety This organization is growing by the day and already includes: Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association; Organization of Nurse Leaders; ANA Massachusetts (the state chapter of the American Nurses Association); Conference of Boston Teaching Hospitals; and Massachusetts Council of Community Hospitals.
We invite you to get involved and help stop this costly and rigid proposal.
