Nurse to Patient Ratio! Now this  is  a topic  of great interest and concern to  all Nurses!  In this blog Pam shares an update!

The Parliamentary Committee Report on Safe Nurse-to-Patient and Midwife-to-Patient Ratios has been released.In its first reading Government members strongly supported the intent and progression of the Bill, however, non-Government members considered that they could not support the Bill in its current form. As a consequence, the Parliamentary Committee was unable to reach agreement on whether to recommend that the Bill be passed. The Bill is likely to be listed for a second reading debate during one of the two May sitting weeks (10 to 12 May or 24 to 26 May).

LASA Q and LASA National provided a response to the enquiry and they continue to raise this issue on behalf of the industry!
