Opportunity: Sign On to Support Nurse Staffing Public Reporting

After the many emails we have sent this year about the challenges facing nurses, patients, and the health care system, it’s a pleasure to come to you now with some good news. CMS has proposed the public reporting of two nurse staffing quality measures to help consumers compare hospitals based on the level of nurse staffing and staff skill mix. The measures were included in the proposed FY 2018 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS). Safe hospitals provide better care. If patients are denied information on how hospitals staff their shifts, the public can’t hold them accountable. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is collecting public comments on their proposal to require key information from hospitals on how they staff their shifts — information that every patient has a right to know. Add your name to our call for safer hospitals. Personalized comments make a bigger impact, so if you can, please share a story about why safe hospitals matter to you and those you work with. The comment period will end tomorrow, June 13. more
