Joint Letter Supporting Nurse Delegation Sent to Senate President

Organization leaders supportive of the Home Care Alliance’s Nurse Delegation bill (S.860) signed onto a letter aimed at Senate President Therese Murray and urging her to bring the proposal before the full Senate for debate.

The joint letter initiated by the Home Care Alliance is also copied to Senator Frederick E. Berry, who is Chairman of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Rules, which is where the bill currently sits. The next step for the legislation would be a formal session where state senators would debate the matter, but with time running down the Alliance and the bill’s supporters are working to advance the issue to that vital step.

Go to the HCA Legislative Action Center and click “Please Advance S.860 for Better Home Health” to send a letter to the Senate Committee on Ethics and Rules, or call Senator Berry’s office at 617-722-1410.

Some organizations, including the Massachusetts Association of Registered Nurses and the Massachusetts Association of Nurse Executives, are in support of S.860, but were not able to sign onto the letter.
