I'm a nursing student, attempting to do a written report on nurse-staff ratios in oncology units.
Can anyone give me some direct input on the ratios existing today in your in-patient facilities?
I've read mega articles concerning the new legislation in California, mandating 1-5 ratios next year, narrowing to 1-4 ratios by 2008. I would love to get some comparisons of what's really going on out "in the real world" today!
Any input you can give will be tremendously appreciated. Many thanks!
