    1:4-5 with 3 aides on days, 1:5-6 with 2 aides on nights. But when they pull a nurse from us to cover ER overflow during high census, day and night end up with 1:6.

    SWFL: 5:1 days (8:1 for aides), 6:1 nights (11:1 for aides), charge typically does NOT have an assignment, but days is starting to have 1 patient and nights may have a full assignment, unit clerk from 7a-11p; often 10-15 postops M-F; IMO, ortho is staffed better because it's a $$$ maker for the facilities (and the orthopedic surgeons usually do NOT stand for lackluster staffing)
