The NSWNA’s campaign for mandated nurse-to-patient ratios has been broadcast into people’s homes and cars via our TV and radio ads.
Two TV ads have been created. One features nurse Claire Brunton, who worked for 11 years in NSW hospitals and now works in Victoria. She talks about the benefits of ratios and why NSW needs them.
A second ad shows a stressed nurse desperately rushing from one patient to another trying to help them, with a voiceover talking about why a ratio of one nurse to four patients is necessary.
Both ads end by encouraging people to visit the NSWNA’s campaign website www.one2four.com.au.
A radio version of the ad featuring Claire has also hit the airwaves.

How many patients can one nurse be safely responsible for?
