Speak Up for Safe Staffing

The Senate Health and Human Services Committee will hear our safe staffing bill on Tuesday, April 2 at 3:30 p.m.

It’s critical that lawmakers hear from you about why safe staffing will lead to greater patient protection and improved quality care in Nevada.

If you’re able to attend the hearing in person, it is in the Legislative Building, Room 2149, Carson City. If you’re in Southern Nevada, you can attend the meeting and provide testimony via videoconference. The meeting is in Room 4412 of the Grant Sawyer State Building, 555 W. Washington Ave., Las Vegas.

Wear your work uniform and come tell lawmakers why safe staffing is so critical.

The Healthcare Law: Bringing Relief to Nurses and Patients

By Raushanah Abdullah, RN, SEIU Nevada

My fellow nurses and I are celebrating National Nurses Week this year by using it as an opportunity to make sure everyone in Nevada knows about the positive changes that the Affordable Care Act has made in the lives of nurses, patients and our community.

I have a real appreciation for what access to timely, quality care can mean because I am a nurse–but also because my husband is the recipient of a kidney transplant which saved his life.
