- Share your story. Our most powerful tool we have as nurses is to share our stories about why this matters with each other, with the public, and with politicians. It’s time to break the silence. If you want to help contribute nurse stories for our emails, social media, or other public outreach, you can email us at email@example.com to send us letters, videos, whatever you want people to know about why safe patient limits is important to you (just don’t violate HIPAA or talk about your employer specifically!).
- As a statewide movement, we hold a lot of meetings and trainings over video conference, and we generally use the app Zoom, which you can click here to download. Click here for our guide to joining a Zoom video call.
Safe Patient Limits for Nursing Homes:
- Nursing home and hospitals are regulated differently under the law, so our path to safe patient limits will look different! We took a lot of time to figure out the best policy path to safe patient limits in nursing homes, and we have just launched our campaign, so we’ll be working on developing more resources on this fight to fill out this section.
