Does anyone have a problem with the Ministries regulation of having to have an RN in the building? We have 4 full time RN's that work 12 hours days and nights. Because of this scheduling it is hard to keep casual staff. I have about 4 casual RN's right now, but it's still next to impossible to keep the home staffed 24/7 with an RN. We are calling 2 different agencies who sometimes neither can give us an RN. We keep getting order after order!
Does anyone have experience with going from 12 hour shifts to 8's? Did it help with staffing?
Who are the Ministries??? Are you in Canada?
