Neuro Pcu ratio

  1. If anyone has worked on a Neuro Pcu unit what's your ratios? We currently have 6 to 7 patients per nurse, 2 tech's for the entire 30 bed unit to share nurses, we explain diagnostic results to families because the doctors refuse, it's starting to become too overwhelming! What's your experiences?

    Ouch. I'm at neuro trauma pcu in Washington state and we have 3 patients as a standard... once or twice I've carried 4 patients if someone called in but 4 is the rare exception.
