Senator Robert Singer voted AGAINST Patient Safety for our Nursing Home Patients

In NJ nurses have reported that nursing homes are often staffed dangerously. One LPN can have 60 patients with the assistance of 3 CNAs. We need to protect those people who are often laying in beds, relying on staff to feed, bath and keep them clean because they are unable to toilet themselves.


Hospitals which routinely staff with 1:8 nurse- to-patient ratios experience five additional deaths per 1,000 patients than those staffing 1:4 nurse patient ratios (Journal of the American Medical Association 2002).

The odds of patient death increases by 7% for each additional patient the nurse must take on at one time (Journal of the American Medical Associations 2002).
