Arizona Nurses Rally at Capitol for Patient Safety - Thursday
Date:2/12/2008

law, lives are being saved, our ability to be effective advocates for our patients is stronger, and more RNs are entering the work force and staying at the bedside longer -- mitigating the nursing shortage."

Since the law was signed, 80,000 more licensed RNs have joined California's workforce.

In addition to Arizona, NNOC/CNA members are promoting similar bills in Illinois, Maine, Ohio, and Texas, and working with the Massachusetts Nurses Association on a proposed ratio law in their state. "RNs across the nation have seen the future, and the enormous benefits of this law. They know it works for patients, nurses, and communities," said Cortez.

Multiple academic studies have pointed to the benefits of minimum, safe, RN-to-patients ratios, including one study ("Hospital Nurses Staffing and Patient Mortality, Nurses, Burnout, and Job Dissatisfaction," in the October 2002 Journal of the American Medical Association) that found that for every patient above four "assigned to a nurse, the mortality rate rises 7 percent" -- meaning the difference between an RN caring for four and eight patients could be an increase of as much as 28 percent in mortality, endangering thousands of Arizona patients every year.

About NNOC/CNA

The National Nurses Organizing Committee, founded by the California Nurses Association, is a national movement for registered nurses with some 80,000 members from California to Maine.
