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.
