Does anyone know what the nurse to pt. Ratio limit is in PA. I work the 3-11 shift and have 43 residents in my care. I wondered if this is normal or not this is my first venture into LTC.
Any insight would be great. Thank you.

Is this skilled care? What are you responsible for? Meds, Tx, orders? Sounds like a bit much for me! We have 48. 1 RN, 1 LPN and 3- 4 CNAs. Rn has 26pts,LPN 22. Each does their own meds, treatments, admits, orders. RN normally handles the docs and also does the cetral and PICC lines.
