Did Your State Rep Vote for Safe Staffing or a Do Nothing Study?
Recently, the RI House of Representatives had a historic chance to pass safe staffing once and for all. Instead it opted to create a meaningless commission dominated by employers to “study” short staffing. Worse, it not only gave no public notice before holding the vote, it did a voice vote to hide the identity of all who supported it. We believe you have a right to know who voted against taking action for safe staffing.
One thing is certain - we don’t need another study to tell short staffing is real, we need urgent solutions NOW. We need to hold our elected officials accountable to either siding with caregivers and residents or pandering to profit-hungry industry executives.
Send a letter to your Reps TODAY - ask them if they voted to pass The Nursing Staffing and Quality Care Act or instead voted to create a pointless study commission. Countless lives are on the line and we need real leadership, not more of the same lethal status quo.
