League of Women Voters Issues Luncheon

for the public and members of LWVBN

Why Safe Staffing of Registered Nurses Matters!


Presenters: Sara Buckley, RN, Legislative Director, Communications Workers of America Local 1168; Jennifer Tuttle, Legislative Director, Communications Workers of America District 1; and Ann Converso, RN Organizer, Communications Workers of America


Hear registered nurses (RNs) tell real stories about how short staffing has impacted their patients. Learn about health care risks that are rarely talked about - how and why the number of registered nurses at hospital bedsides is insufficient for quality care. Our speakers will discuss the importance of safe staffing to patient outcomes, the research that supports safe staffing ratios, and legislation currently before the New York State Legislature.
