    well if there are only going to be four nursing assistants on your shift that means you are going to be responsible for at least 8 patients yourself . if they are total care like you say that means you are going to be responsible for seeing each one is fed ,taken to bathroom every 2 hrs, turned every two hours,oral care, linen changes etc, sounds like a big job for one aide to eight residents. i would try to find a job where there have a better staff to patient ratio!

    You work in long-term care and you think she's going to find a better ratio than 1:8 for a CNA?

    The staffing ratio sounds great to me. When I worked nocs taking care of 65 total care and hospice pts (trachs, tube feeds, incont, all of that) I was the only nurse working w/ 4 CNAs we busted out butts on that unit.
    question...are all of the ltc assignments for travelers this bad?! i'm not a traveler but have left the snow in new england for sunny so.cal but the staffing here is awful. where was your favorite?
