SAFE PATIENT CARE (NURSE TO PATIENT AND MIDWIFE TO PATIENT RATIOS) AMENDMENT BILL 2020 – Second Reading Debate

I stood up in Parliament to talk on the Safe Patient Care (Nurse to Patient and Midwife to Patient Ratios) Amendment Bill 2020. This important legislation is committed to ensuring Victorians have access to high-quality and safe health care as well as respecting the work of our nurses and midwives.

 

Nurses and midwives are at the heart of our hospitals and health services, and I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the important work of the ANMF and their members, who have been on the front line caring for our community during this pandemic and putting themselves at risk to save lives.
