    We are 1:4 days and nights. No tele techs, and 2 UCs/secretaries from 8a to 8p. We're only a 20 bed floor, and we generally staff for 16, with 2 care techs. If we open the last station for 20, we get one more tech.

    I work nights on a 'med/tele' unit... But it's pretty much all tele, maybe 1-2 medical patients on the whole floor. We have 1-7 ratio, with 2aides and 3 nurses. Secretary only until 11. No charge nurse. And get this... Our monitors/monitor tech are on another floor.
