For those of you who are currently working in Massachusetts, how would you say your patient load is on a typical day? Do you feel you are given a manageable number of patients, so you can get your work done within your shift? Or do you feel you're constantly running behind, busy from the time you get there to the time you leave, rarely getting a break and always leaving late?
Please don't say specifically where you work, but general information about where in Massachusetts, what type of setting/floor, what shift you work, etc., might be helpful. I'm just wondering what the working conditions are like around here.

The Massachusetts Hospital Association publishes stats on ratios on their web site:
The reporting is voluntary, but should give you a good sense of what things are like at different hospitals on different units.
