I work at a LTC facility in North Central Arkansas, our nurse pt ratio 30-40 residents per nurse, depending on which area you work in the facility, at maximum census, the most residents a nurse could have is 48 on day/evening shift, and 60 on night shift.
I work in ICU now. If pt's are true ICU then it is max 2 patients. If some are telemetry overflow patients, we can have 3 or 4 .
I used to work med surg and we would have up to 6 on days and up to 8 on nocs. Hopefully we would have enough techs for support, but not always.
