Editorial: Lawmakers Must Back Bill on Nurse Oversight
California lawmakers should hold against "pressure" from the California Nurses Association, the Service Employees International Union and other lobby groups on a bill (SB 1111) that would increase oversight of nurses and other health professionals, a Sacramento Bee editorial argues. The Senate Business, Professions and Economic Development Committee is voting on the bill today, and if it fails because of opposition from the unions, "the losers will be patients of troubled nurses and other health professionals"
