Hi all! How many patients are you allowed to care of at a time on your med surg floor during days or nights? In our hospital, on days, we go up to 6 and night shift can take up to 7. Just curious. I work at a hospital near Chicago.
I work on a surgery unit, but we also get medicine patients when gen med floors are full. 3-4 on days and 5 on nights.
