Other comments:

“Nurses need to decide how many patients they can safely take care of NOT the government.”

“Nurses need the flexibility to meet the needs of acute patients not incur a fine for using clinical judgement.”

“The nurse’s unions are not giving the full story. Working in health care for over 25 years I can definitely tell you that if the Yes vote wins this will cause major damage to hospitals.”

“How will hospitals become safer if we don’t make them? Though, I am concerned that this result in less options because of less providers being willing to put up with these rules imposed on them.”

“I’m really torn because I have heard from ER docs that they are concerned about the specifics of this bill being difficult to safely implemented. Yet, I also hear loud and clear from nurses about why this is so needed, and so I am siding with the side with less power (nurses) and trusting those with power (doctors, hospital administrators, legislators) to step in and make amendments to it as needed, should it pass.”

“RN voting no!”

“The question as written on ballot is awkward and will confuse voters.”
