Nurse Patient Ration In California

  1. Hi Good day to you all! I was woundering if someone could tell me about the nurse pt ratio laws out west in California. At product rep who was also an RN came to my hospital once and was talking about them. I only heard a little of what she was saying because I had to leave because of course my 23 weeker crashed. I am interested in what the law has to say about level III NICU nurse pt ratio

    The nurse/patient ratio for the NICU is 1:2.

    Here is the full text of AB394. It's interesting to read.

    Any idea how I can find out what S.C.'s ratios are (if indeed there ARE any ) ???
    I have heard rumors, but would like to see something IN WRITING, ya know?

    Thanks!
