California is the only state in the nation with nurse-to-patient ratios for every unit. These regulations are intended to keep patients safe.
The trouble is the penalties for violating the law are nearly nonexistent. Hospitals claim Title 22 regulations are just “recommendations” or “guidelines.” Most are never fined unless there’s a patient death or serious injury. By then, it’s too late.
SB 227 will protect patient safety by inspecting and fining hospitals that constantly put patients and Nurses in danger.
