ratio for fresh CABG pts - Page 2Register Today!
- Nov 19, '11 by BiffbradfordQuote from NickiLaughsIt's all about bed space. Early morning conference calls between all surgeons and charge nurse to move patients OUT if they want to get their new cases IN that day. It's a factory, it's all about $$$. Gotta crank 'em out. On some days you're lucky if your surgery wasn't canceled for lack of ICU space. Seriously.Are these surgeons aware? I think they would even have a fit about their patients having this load. It's 1:1 the first 8 hours the two hospitals I worked at

fresh post op 1:1
pt awaiting transfer to stepdown and 1 critical then 1:2
Let your surgeons know about this as another post stated. They would not be happy. They can do something about it. Get the MD on your side
- Dec 6, '11 by sweetspiritAre you serious? Fresh CABG's should always be 1:1....Your facility should be ashamed to have their nurse tied to another patient! Wow...don't think I'd be working there long, what a liability!
