Stories about "Ratios":
It seems like nurses and midwives are always struggling under the weight of poor patient-to-staff ratios. It is hoped that an influx of new workers could help ease the load. This will be a welcome relief for local staff.
The NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association (NSWNMA) has welcomed an announcement by the NSW government that there will be a Safe Staffing Working Group – an historic step towards implementing nurse-to-patient ratios in NSW public hospitals.
Adding an exclamation mark to yesterday's announcement that the Greens have introduced a Bill to legislate staff-to-patient ratios for nurses and midwives, public sector nurses and midwives have voted in favour of a 24 hour strike next Wednesday.
In an about-time moment, a Bill has been introduced to see nurses, midwives and patients get a much better deal in hospital with reasonable and workable staff-to-patient ratios.
Tomorrow thousands of nurses and midwives from more than 150 public hospitals and health services will strike statewide over the NSW government’s failure to introduce nurse-to-patient ratios on every shift.
