What is the nurse patient ratio in aPhase 2 GI lab. Recovery room? We have one RN with 6-8 patient slots. Usually full with post bronch
and gi patients. The rn is responsible for admitting in patients and recovering all patients with no other support from anyone else. She is unable to leave the area and rarely gets lunch or breaks. I was wondering if there were any guidelines for the ratio in the phase 2 recovery. Most patients are very sleepy and I know a lot of phase 1 recovery will have a 2-1 ratio for heavy sedated patients.
