ARMIDALE NURSES AND MIDWIVES RALLY FOR BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS

Dozens of nurses and midwives rallied outside Armidale Hospital today, fighting for safer working conditions.

The state’s Nurses and Midwives Association says mandated nurse-to-patient ratios are needed to meet growing demand.

Between January and March, attendance at Armidale’s emergency department jumped by 7.3%, compared to this time last year.

Nurses say they’re over worked under the current conditions.
