PA Democrats Urge Senate To Act On Mandatory Overtime For Nurses

Nurse and patient safety still waits for Senate

One year ago this week, the state House of Representatives passed legislation to ban mandatory overtime for nurses and other health-care workers. Since last May, however, the Senate has refused to even move the bill out of committee.

Meanwhile, Pennsylvania nurses are still being disciplined and even fired when they won't or can't work multiple shifts. Mandatory overtime is unfair to nurses and dangerous for the patients they care for.

Pennsylvania hospitals can be staffed without relying on mandatory overtime. Other states have banned the practice, and it is already prohibited in some Pennsylvania hospitals. In these places, patients are receiving quality care.

The House worked diligently to get the bill to the Senate. It's been a year and now, we're asking for your help. Urge the Senate to pass this legislation to improve patient care and nurse safety in our hospitals.

Thank you for your time. More information on this and other state-related issues can be found at
