I work in a 12 bed CVICU in California. Our director has begun to talk about increasing our ratio to 3:1 in our unit if we have too many floor patients awaiting transfer out to med/surg. I thought Title 22 and AB 394 in California prohibited increasing the ratio in a critical care unit regardless of classification of patient. I thought that as long as the patient was "between the walls" of the unit the ratio could not be changed. I would appreciate any thoughts or comments please. Thank you.
