Safe Staffing

Nurses are being forced to take on 9, 10, or more patients at once. That's too many. We're fighting for a law to set safe staffing ratios. We have the tools for you to make a difference. Sign up here to join our safe staffing action team.

“When nurses go to work, we don't know what staffing is going to be like. As a nurse in a Level One Trauma Center, I can say staffing is essential to the quality of care we deliver.”

- Yasmin Bahar, RN, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital

Numerous academic studies and statistics back up what we know from experience: that safe staffing saves lives and is an essential component of public health.

There is a crisis in New York patient care – a staffing crisis. As nurses, we see every day how this crisis hurts our patients.

On May 20, we will join with our allies in 1199SEIU, CWA, PEF, and other unions to lobby for safe staffing.

Event Address: 

Empire State Plaza/NYS Capitol
Albany, NY

The solution is the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act (A6571/ S3691-A), a bill in Albany that would set safe minimum nurse staffing levels in all our hospitals. Research shows that safe staffing saves lives and money. Urge your representatives to support this important legislation.
