Nurse staffing bill faces roadblock in the MN House

Minnesota Public Radio, March 11, 2013

A bill that would require Minnesota hospitals to meet national standards on nurse staffing appears headed for a roadblock in the Legislature. The chair of the House Health and Human Services Policy Committee says she doesn't intend to hold a hearing on the bill unless the Minnesota Nurses Association and the hospitals start getting closer to a compromise on the issue. The union is lobbying hard for the legislation because it says nurse staffing levels in some hospitals are too low and could put patients in danger.
