UNAC/UHCP’s Dialysis Ratios Bill Featured in Nephrology News
UNAC/UHCP has sponsored a bill in the California State Senate to set staffing ratios in dialysis clinics for RNs and other dialysis caregivers, including PCTs and social workers. Senate Bill 349, the Dialysis Patient Safety Act, was introduced by State Senator Ricardo Lara in February.
An article posted online at Nephrology News and Issues, a longtime key news source in the dialysis field, discusses the bill and UNAC/UHCP's role in supporting it.
By giving dialysis nurses and patients the same protections enjoyed by hospital nurses and patients--safe ratios--our bill will help to improve working conditions for caregivers and quality of care for patients.
