Hospital Staffing Issue Addressed in St. Paul

by

Duluth, MN (KDAL) - This is a dispute that has Duluth hospitals and nurses unions watching the outcome very closely.  Jobs are at state and so is patient safety.

A Minnesota lawmaker has proposed a bill in the State Legislature to study the relationship between nursing staffing levels and patient care.  Inver Grove Heights  Democrat Joe Aitkins says his bill will try to restore; QUOTE: "Peace in the Valley."

Nurses claim that staffing levels are too low and hospitals say they will determine how many RNs are in the ward.
