My brother who is a nurse at one of the large hospitals in Boston (been a nurse for over 15 years) says to answer "No". I trust his opinion his is a smart guy and a dedicated nurse who cares for excellent patient care.
Some of his points - requiring a minimum number of nurses per patient does not make sense. That would mean you would need x number of nurses during the day and the same amount at night. Typically at night there is minimum work that a nurse needs to do so you would have several nurses just reading a book or on their phone.
Also, it leaves out other decision making that these intelligent nurses should be more than qualified to do. Say for example there is an emergency on another floor - the nurses on other floors will not be able to respond as they will need to stay where they are - they couldn't send one from each floor to the emergency room if something huge happened to help out - and in Boston we know that can happen - Boston Marathon.
My personal opinion - those that say to vote no - are probably the ones not thinking this through or are naive or lazy (hoping this means less work for them).
I think a huge thing on this like many regulations - is it takes decision making from those best in the position to do so - the medical team - to bureaucrats.
