New National ‘Ratios’ Bills Set Safety Limits on Number of Patients Assigned to Nurses

This looks over all like a great bill, but it missed including nursing home ratios. This only applies to hospitals. There must be something to set some nursing home standards if we really want appropriate care to be given in nursing home environments. We regulate day cares for our children yet on the opposite end of the age spectrum we do not work to protect our elderly or disabled. So hope the bill finally passes, then we go back and submit a bill for nursing homes!
