Surviving Healthcare Today: Nurses for National Patient Ratios
October 26, 2016•50 min
Guest: Kristine Fry, founder of Nurses for National Patient Ratios, focused on improving patient safety by advocating for having a national standard for nurse to patient ratios. Kristine is an RN who has worked in states who staff based on staffing plan, and in California where set nurse to patient ratios is a legislative mandate. She has experienced the difference in nursing care when nurses are only given a safe nurse to patient ratio. "The cause is patient safety, which is the embodiment of all that is Nursing."
