I have co-sponsored legislation that will keep Massachusetts at the forefront when it comes to health care. In order to protect patients, I co-sponsored a bill that will direct the Department of Public Health to set a limit on how many hospital patients a nurse is ordered to care for at one time. This will relieve overburdened nurses and help prevent medical errors. Another bill I co-sponsored will prohibit the practice of mandatory overtime whereby hospitals will not be allowed to force nurses to work exhaustive hours. Studies have shown that mandatory overtime harms patients. I have also co-sponsored legislation to help elders receive Mass Health coverage and increase standards for nursing homes and direct care workers who treat Alzheimer's patients.
