NURSES EVALUATE LEGISLATURE, HONOR LEGISLATORS

The Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA) held an event  at the Capitol Monday afternoon in coordination with their legislative day.

The association evaluated the legislature and their responsiveness to nurses issues. They gave the General Assembly a B+ for legislative action, noting achievement in passing Senate Bill 5, which provides for community-based health care. The association said the legislature did not get a higher grade largely due to it not passing association supported safe staffing legislation.

The association also gave the legislature a B for overall responsiveness and a B+ in improvement, particularly noting action on the Healthy Pennsylvania plan.

Sen. Joseph Scarnati (R-Jefferson) and Rep. Stephen Barrar (R-Delaware) were each honored for their continuing commitment to support and provide a voice to nurses across the state.
