How long will it take the Quebec Gouvernment to mandate a LPN/patient ratio? Mistakes are made with patients because of understaffing. What takes so long? I feel the sooner that's in place and enforced, it would benefit everyone greatly. First day on the job I was responsible for 2 floors, 3 PABs and I was the only nurse that night with 70 pts to give meds to and wound care, orthopedic stockings ECG. I think it's dangerous for the patients when the nurses workload is way over the top. Think of all the dangerous mishaps that could happen and we are held liable, sued for mistakes yet with crazy workload expectations the is bound to be mistakes somewhere, noticed or not. We need to speak for our patients !!Remember we are their voice.
