Vote No on Question One

Lawrence General values the excellent, compassionate care our nurses provide every day. We oppose the November ballot question that asks voters to approve mandated nurse staffing in hospitals.  
  • Unnecessary and unproven
  • Excessively expensive
  • Threatens other hospital programs
  • Causes care delays and potential patient harm
Patients will see higher insurance premiums and reduced access to quality local care. It will cost Lawrence General Hospital nearly $8 million in additional expenses, and $12 million in lost revenue to implement. Mandated staff ratios will force bed closures on all units, and disrupt access to inpatient and emergency services.

Share the Petition


In April of last year, the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA) "surveyed" 302 nurses - before anyone could read the ballot measure - and they are advertising a false claim about their level of support. The Coalition to Protect Patient Safety is setting the record straight and counting the number of nurses voting NO!

If you're a nurse, please sign and share this petition and be counted! (you may also enter supporters of the NO vote - There is a button to check nurse or not a nurse) https://www.protectpatientsafety.com/rns-voting-no/.
