Advocacy Alert - NYONEL Member Action Requested
This announcement has 2 attachments:
As previously reported, the safe staffing bill was rewritten and divided into a hospital bill: A108B-Gunther/ S1168-Rivera (which would require staffing committees to create, execute and evaluate and report on staffing plans), and a nursing home bill.
The nursing home bill (A7119-Gunther/S6346-Rivera) would require mandatory staffing hours per resident per day in all nursing homes. The bill is moving quickly through both chambers and NYONEL strongly opposes this bill for the reasons noted in the attached Memo of Opposition. Our members are urged to contact your NY State Senator and Assemblyperson to urge them to oppose the bill. A copy of the bill is also attached (the Senate and Assembly bills are identical).

Thank you for your anticipated prompt outreach!
