Few professions demand the level of daily commitment and sacrifice that is routine for nurses. It’s time for Pennsylvania’s leaders to recognize the lifesaving work done by nurses and other health workers and to protect the quality of care.
I urge you to pass the Patient Safety Act (HB 106) to set safe patient limits for hospital nurses and to protect nurses from job retaliation when they speak up for their patients’ needs.
And to expand the number of people ready to do this essential work, I ask you to pass the Nurse and Health Care Worker Loan Forgiveness Act (HB 226) to support these front-line personnel who work for us around the clock to save lives.
Please take these actions on behalf of all of us who depend on nurses and other health care workers to be there when we need them the most.
