The Registered Nurse Safe Staffing Act of 2013 was introduced in Congress to address concerns of inadequate and inappropriate staffing, which threatens patients' safety and the nurses' health. The act would encourage development of staffing systems that require the input of direct care registered nurses, as well as protection for RNs who speak out about patient care issues. This suggested legislation has not been acted on. The CDC is not involved in monitoring medical errors caused by nurse understaffing. Hospitals are not required to report errors that occur due to nurse understaffing.
