Just curious to know the legal maximum amount of residents a LPN charge nurse should have working in a nsg home. Also, seems we are always short handed and my CNA's are stressed out having to care for close to 64 residents in the building on night shift 11-7 with 2 CNA's only! During the daytime, 5 or 4 CNA's are stretched out on the floor. Not fair for the night crew. As far as LPN's go, 2 LPN charge nurses run the 2 units of a maximum "full house" of 68 beds. On average, I am responsible for 33 residents. Is all this legal?
