A new study on nurse staffing levels was hailed by the California Nurses Association on Tuesday as proof that the state’s nursing-ratio law is saving lives.

If similar laws were enacted in such states as Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the number of patient deaths in those states could be reduced by as much as 14 percent, according to the study conducted by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and published in the journal Health Services Research.
