Community Event – Why Safe Staffing of Nurses Matters

As part of their Lunch and Issues series, the League of Women Voters of Buffalo Niagara will present a panel of registered nurses (RNs) who will tell real stories about how short staffing has impacted their patients — about how and why the number of registered nurses at hospital bedsides is insufficient for quality care. The speakers will also discuss the importance of safe staffing to patient outcomes, the research that supports safe staffing ratios, and legislation currently before the New York State Legislature.

SUBJECT:        Why Safe Staffing of Nurses Matters

TIME:              Thursday, February 18, 2016, at 11:30 AM – 2 PM

PLACE:            Scotch ‘n Sirloin Restaurant, 3999 Maple Road, Amherst 14226

PROGRAM:    Presenters include Sara Buckley, RN and Ann Converso, RN.

Members of the public are welcome. Make reservations online at http://www.lwvbn.org/or call the League office at 986-4898 by noon Tuesday, February 16, 2016. Luncheon cost is $20.00. Pay at the door with cash or check written to LWVBN. Please call the League office to attend the program only.
