- Jan 31, '05 by SilverhawkQuote from BeccaRNI have 50 residents LTC and one to two aides. I am swamped no breaks, no lunch, except 5 min as I do NN's. 65 is unreal, I can't imagine 65! I have been there 3 months and was told if I can't cut it I could leave. We need nursing to patient staffing laws now!My first job was in a LTC and I was the only nurse at night with 1 aid for 65 residents. No breaks or anything plus the safety issue. I was there 2 weeks and gave my notice.
