    I would LOVE to be at 5:1 (w/an aide). When I started on my floor we were told the manager was trying to get the ratio to 5:1, but in the past few months that has happened only a few times. Now the CEO is telling us that b/c of the sequestration, funding will be reduced, so we are on a hiring freeze. I have no expectation that the 5:1 ratio will happen now.
