Yet another tragic mass shooting demonstrates the importance of legislation currently in the U.S. Senate that would provide substantial safety protection for our nation’s health care workers, patients, and their families.
NNU announced its support for the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring our PACT Act, a bill that would expand VA services to the 3.5 million United States veterans who faced toxic burn pit exposure during their military service.
NNU strongly endorsed efforts by President Biden, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and the vast majority of the House and Senate Democratic caucuses to pass the reconciliation and infrastructure legislation in tandem.
NNU specifically applauded Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders for paving the way for the reconciliation package to include critical Medicare improvements and expansion.
National Nurses United today applauds the introduction of the Nurse Staffing Standards for Hospital Patient Safety and Quality Care Act, a federal bill that would set specific safety limits on the numbers of patients each RN can care for in hospitals throughout the United States.
