WWLP: A ballot question that would set limits for how many patients a Massachusetts nurse can care for at one time is still in the running for a spot on the 2018 ballot. Registered nurses said they’re currently being forced by hospitals to care for too many patients at once. They’re pushing for Massachusetts to set statewide patient assignment limits.
State House News Service: Supporters of a ballot question calling for nurse staffing mandates listed Secretary of State William Galvin on their campaign agenda for an event outside the State House Wednesday and the state’s top election official won applause as he discussed the importance of citizens deciding health care issues. His office then accepted scores of certified signatures from activists who are backing the proposal.
