Nurses "Taking" Ohio

Support the fight for Nurse:Patient Ratios!

NOTE: Shirts will NOT be available until after our rally. But the movement will continue!!

The numbers don’t lie…and they’re costing people their lives right now. Hospitals which routinely schedule 1:8 nurse-to-patient ratios experience five additional deaths per 1,000 patients than those staffing with 1:4 nurse-to-patient ratios.* The odds of patient death increase by 7% for each additional patient (above 8) the nurse must take on at one time. Numerous studies categorically demonstrate that health care facilities that stretch the number of patients its nurses provide care for increase the risk of patient death (following common medical procedures) by 7%. Where a nurse’s workload is eight patients or more on a single shift, the risk of death rises over 30%.

America needs to know. On May 5, it will. America’s health care professionals will be gathering in Washington D.C. on May 5 to let our government—and the public—know that we are systemically ignoring an issue which costs us thousands of lives each year. Together we can stand on the right side of history, to change healthcare, unite nurses, providers and patients to make healthcare better and safer for all.
