NSW nurses have demanded that the minimum nurse-to-patient ratios be implemented, so that, improved quality and satisfactory health care can be offered to the patients.
General Secretary of the NSW Nurses Association (NSWNA), Brett Holmes on Monday said that public hospital and community healthcare nurses, all were supporting the reform.
He said that if the reform was put in place, then this would be the biggest reform ever for the NSW public health program in almost a good number of years.
Exemplifying the healthcare system that Victoria, in California and many other places follow, which is maintaining appropriate nurse-to-patient ratios, he said that those systems were working better than the system that is in the region.
It has been claimed by the NSWA that the health system has been inundated with the deficit in the number of nurses available and also, inferior level skill, which in turn intimidates the safety of patients.
The patient ratio that it wants to see is one-to-four nurse to patient ratio in a majority of metropolis hospices in the new award, which is following the old one’s expiry on 30th June of this year.
The ratio reaped beneficial results in Victoria and here too would help nurses shed off the extra burden, said Mr. Holmes.
