Legislators in both the House and Senate have introduced bills that would establish nurse staffing levels—Rep. Jon Switalski (D-Warren), with HB 5425 and Senator Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor) with SB 1019. These bills were referred to their chamber’s respective Health Policy Committees, which have not yet taken them up for consideration. If you live in the district of either bill sponsor, please send a letter of thanks. If you live in other areas, please ask for your legislators’ support. These bills would help improve patient and employee health and safety and are long overdue!
