The Massachusetts Patients Win - House and Senate Unanimously pass staffing solution
ANA Massachusetts, the voice of registered nursing in Massachusetts, applauds the efforts of Senate Majority Leader Stan Rosenberg, the Massachusetts Nurses Association, the Massachusetts Hospital Association, and the Massachusetts Organization of Nurse Leaders on their hard work to come to a resolution on the hospital nurse staffing issue.  We also are grateful for the prompt adoption of this bill by the Massachusetts House and Senate, and thank the Governor for signing it into law as we believe it advances patient safety.  ANA Massachusetts and its members look forward to our participation in the implementation of this vital legislation.
