MN Hospital Staffing Bill Moving Forward
(St. Paul, MN) — A bill set to address hospital staffing is moving forward in the Minnesota Legislature. The Senate Health and Human Services Committee advanced a bill yesterday that would require nurses and administrators to work together in every hospital to set staffing levels. The measure also sets reporting requirements and penalties if hospitals don’t meet agreed-upon levels. Backers say the bill has been brought before the Legislature every year since 2007.
