Hannah Josene started this petition to Representative Nydia M. Velázquez and

Mandated patient ratios for nursing staff is a necessity for caring for acute illnesses and emergencies that arise in the hospitals. When understaffed, nurses can get upwards of 7 patients per nurse. When there is an emergency, the nurse is unable to tend to the patient the way they should be tended to. As well, the nurse is unable to check in on the other patients they have. Not only are medications and treatments missed, but patients suffer and nurses get burned out. I have seen many fatal mistakes that would not have happened if the nurse was able to know information about the patients and able to spend time understanding the orders, both of which there is no time for. Please help us show that NY State needs to mandate ratios for the betterment of patients and nursing staff.
