New RN, interviewed at an LTC facility.....scared!!! - Page 2Register Today!
- Jul 21, '12 by JZ_RNQuote from BrandonLPNAre you sure you didn't hear wrong about the one CNA. One RN/LPN per 24 reidents is fine. One CNA per 24 residents is impossible! Unless their census is really really low? I'd frankly be nervous working in a facility with that severe of a census drop....
Lol one RN or LPN for 24 residents is not fine. It's less than most places, but still unacceptable and dangerous, period. It's amazing what people will tolerate wow.
