Nurses’ union pushes for better staffing
Miami Herald, May 13, 2008
During a forum at Miami Dade College Medical Center Campus, a nursing union pushed for national and state legislation to set minimum nurse-to-patient ratios amid a worsening shortage of nurses. Nursing advocates assert that hospitals would lure more nurses back to work and reduce turnover if they would boost staffing levels so that nurses aren't chronically overworked. Most hospitals are opposed to any mandates, arguing they shackle administrators and impair their flexibility to respond to dynamic hospital situations.
