I work as an RN in a combination long/short time facility in NJ.
Currently I am in the Sub Acute Unit.
Staffing has been cut so that each nurse has 14 to 15 patients per shift, plus admissions etc.
I am seeking clarification as the the legal number of patients on a sub acute unit which can be assigned to an RN or LPN.
The management says (15), and it almost literally impossible.
I would appreciate any advice as to whom I might call for clarification or if anyone knows the law in NJ.
