MI nurses want minimum staffing levels
Democrats in the Michigan Legislature and a nurses? union are calling for a state law that would require hospitals to maintain staff levels without resorting to mandatory overtime. Sixteen states currently have rules regarding staff-to-patient ratios. Right now, California is the only state with a law that sets minimum staffing levels in hospitals. State Representative Jon Switalski (D-Warren) is about to introduce legislation to set staffing requirements in emergency rooms and other hospital wards.
