THE MASSACHUSETTS PIRATE PARTY SUPPORTS SAFE PATIENT LIMITS
We stand in solidarity with the Committee to Ensure Safe Patient Care, and urge our members and supporters to stand with them in November’s election.
Patient limits keep hospitals safe, both for patients and for the hardworking professionals who staff them. Without rigorous workplace protections, the privately owned companies managing hospitals seek to maximize profit by overworking and understaffing their facilities.
That, simply, is unacceptable. The proof shows that safe patient limits save lives, therefore we have an obligation to make sure the workplace recognizes that. We cannot trust the free market to responsibly manage healthcare, so we encourage our members and supporters to vote to support safe patient limits.
