Heal DC — Safe Staffing Rally

Hundreds of registered nurses participate in a late afternoon rally to show support for major DC legislation that would require minimum safe staffing in DC hospitals to protect patients.


The Patient Protection Act, a bill to set specific limits on the number of patients RNs can safely care for in every district hospital, along with other patient protections, was introduced in early February by DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson and nine other council members. A hearing is scheduled for May 14 before the Council’s Committee on Health.
