Nurse To Patient Ratios Under Threat

On 12 December, Jenny, along with Members of the Labor Opposition, Colin Brooks (Bundoora), Liz Beattie (Yuroke) and Danielle Green (Yan Yean), attended the Australian Nursing Federation’s rally at the Northern Hospital. Nurses are currently negotiating their EBA with the Baillieu Government and are concerned that nurse-to-patient ratios are under threat and this will undermine the quality of care nurses provide to their patients.

Nurses and midwives from across Victoria work hard taking care of patients each and every day. The Baillieu Government has also flagged replacing nurses and midwives with unregistered and unqualified assistants.
