Lifesaving Bills Filed in Florida Legislature to Guarantee Patient Safety Improvements
Date:3/10/2010

y is nurse under-staffing, when RNs are assigned more than the maximum safe number of patients to care for.  This bill would end that problem and give registered nurses the legal protections they need to stand up to any instances of patient endangerment they witness.  These protections would save lives, and draw RNs back into the profession.

"When patients are denied access to a medically-appropriate level of nursing care, their outcomes suffer. It's that simple, and it is totally preventable.  Many hospitals under-staff their units, denying access to RNs, and undermining patient safety in the name of hospital profits.  The Florida Patient Protection Act will extent to my patients the level of care they deserve," said Barbra Rivera, an RN from St. Petersburg.

"Nurses are on the front line of healthcare and with reform on the horizon it is important for us to protect them and the patients they serve," said Rep. Oscar Braynon.  "This bill does just that and will put Florida at the forefront of quality patient care."  "Finally with this bill Florida RNs will be able to do what they were trained to do, put patient safety first and advocate for patients without fear of retaliation," added Sen. Tony Hill.
