New push coming to regulate staffing at nursing homes, hospitals

Lawmakers and regulators are making a new push to see that patients get high quality care at hospitals and nursing homes.

Dozens of state lawmakers are calling on the New York State Health Department to establish minimum staffing regulations, according to News10NBC.

Nurses say they’re being overworked. Health care companies argue that there are other ways to improve patient safety that don’t include government-mandated staffing.

A measure passed earlier this year requires the health department to study staffing in the healthcare setting. The results are due in days.
