SAFE STAFFING FOR ALL
Learn more about proposed safe staffing legislation in Michigan and how it could impact you.
On May 11, 2023, a legislative package was introduced on the topics of staffing ratios, mandatory overtime, and reporting transparency. Upon detailed review of the package, ANA-Michigan supports the mandatory overtime and reporting transparency pieces in concept, but directly opposes the staffing ratios language as written. It is the position of ANA-Michigan that the current legislation simplifies a complex issue, without taking into account numerous contributing factors. Simultaneously, the legislation would remove decision-making power from nurses statewide regarding safe staffing and addressing patient care needs at the local level.
