The message below is from CWA 1168. Be sure to call your state assemblymember and urge them to support the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act:
Call Your Assemblymember : 1-888-966-9824
We need to get the Safe Staffing Bill out of committee and onto the floor for a vote. The safety of patients and nursing home residents in NYS depend on it. Tell your Assemblymember to pass the Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act (S.782/A.8580-A) now. The Safe Staffing Bill limits the number of patients a nurse can take care of at one time.
Keep in Mind: You can ask who your assemblymember is and the switchboard can then patch you through. The staff person answering will probably ask for your name, address and possibly phone number. If they ask you any questions you don’t know the answer to (which is very rare), get their name and number and someone from the coalition will get back to them. (Let Sarah know at 716-639-1168 or firstname.lastname@example.org). If you reach an answering machine – tell them what town you live in and also leave your email address, mailing address, or phone number.
