Event Description:

RNs to Host Town Hall Meeting in Houston, TX

EVER WONDER…
Why it takes so long to answer your call light and get the safe care you deserve for the price you pay in today’s broken healthcare system? The fact is that patients must always come first in our hospitals.

Fortunately, Texas bedside Registered Nurses are administering the medicine that will help cure our ailing hospitals--House Bill 1707, “The Texas Hospital Patient Protection Act of 2007”. This Historic legislation includes:

 Nurse-to-patient ratios that allow your nurse more time to attend to your care
 REAL protection for nurses that speak out for patient safety
 Advocacy Language that gives RNs a stronger voice when it comes to the care of you and your loved ones

In support of this historic legislation, Texas bedside RNs are hosting Town Hall Meetings across Texas. Come speak out and learn how we can improve the quality of care, while recruiting and retaining highly-skilled RNs.
