was curious to find out what the average patient ratio is on a neuro floor? I worked on a combined neuro ortho floor and it was 4-5 which at times was difficult, having 2 post ops ortho pts and add on 2-3 confused patients with evd drains lol
i got a job offer for a neuro floor stroke certified center rated number 1 in my state. i am assuming they will be high acuity patients too. the ratio on this floor is 5. and in neuro icu 2.
