By MyFM's Rick Michaels - When voters go to the polls in two-weeks from today they’ll decide to vote Yes or No,
on Question “1”, calling for nurse staffing requirements at hospitals. It’s a ballot
question that has many wondering how they should Vote? Supporters like the
Massachusetts Nurses Association say a yes vote will improve patient care.
Opponents like many hospitals including the Milford Regional Medical Center,
with the President and C-E-O, ED Kelly saying the implementation of rigid nurse
staffing ratios the consequences would be disastrous. Kelly says there had been talk of
coming up with a compromise staffing requirements are nothing new at Milford
Regional Kelly says the cost impact of a “Yes” vote on Questions “1” would be about
five- million dollars annually, with the staffing ratios to be implemented in 60-days,
making the hiring of enough nurses a demand that’s not achievable. Kelly and Vice
President of Patients Care Services Judy Kelly provided insight from the standpoint of
the impact on Milford Regional you can hear the entire interview On Demand, on our
