Minnesota Nurses Call for New Standards in Hospitals

Posted: Updated:

Minnesota nurses are forging ahead with a call for state lawmakers to enact standards that will control how hospitals staff their units.

The Minnesota Nurses Association plans to outline its legislative proposal Wednesday.

The Nurses Union, which staged a brief strike at some Minnesota hospitals in 2010 has been making a case for mandatory staffing ratios based on the number of patients and type of unit.

The Minnesota Hospital Association argues that medical staffing decisions are best dealt with by professionals not lawmakers.
