We asked NSWNMA branches across the state to show their support for the Ratios put patient safety first campaign by decorating their ‘desk’ – or workspace – with streamers, badges, small posters and balloons. We want to improve and extend mandated nurse-to-patient ratios under the new Public Health System Award (up for negotiation now) – especially for nurses in the Bush, in Emergency, community and NICUs.
To date, we have well over 100 photos of decked-out desks from all over NSW. Here are just a few, but there are many more fantastic photos which can be viewed here.
