Registered Nurse Safe Staffing Act of 2009

Uploaded by :

A 3 page summation and discussion of the Registered Nurse Safe Staffing (RNSS) Act, which would require that hospitals develop "valid, reliable unit-by-unit staffing plans," which would be developed in coordination with input from the registered nurses (RNs) based in each unit and, therefore, designed to accommodate each "unit's unique characteristics and needs" (ANA, 2009). The writer supports the bill and calls for other nurses to do so as well. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
