- by alabamagrad Jan 17, '12Is there a set minimum nurse-patient ratio for Alabama or can an institution make any grid they want?
- Jan 18, '12 by Bama RNNo set minimum, but it generally varies by shift. I would love to tell you that acuity is taken into account, but unfortunately, that is not the case in most circumstances. At my facility, day shift expects anywhere from 5-7 (usually 7) and night can expect 6-8 (usually 8).
