    Too. Many. Patients. I can't stress that enough. So many that it is unsafe. In a subacute unit, they assign 20 patients to each nurse, at least at the facility near me. These are older people that just got out of acute care, some of whom probably should still be in the hospital!

    Thanks for the advice. It makes me angry that this seems to be the case everywhere. Peoples lives are on the line so the higher ups should take a pay cut and staff properly. Is there anywhere to work where its not dangerous or life/time consuming?

    I agree. I just recently left a mc facility in Montgomery county. They have a policy of not sending anyone out to the hospital and treating everything in house. It's far to unsafe. Not to mention 20-30 patients per nurse. Up to 60 per nurse for overnight shift.

    I remember the place I interviewed at -- it had just been built, so everything was brand-new -- had no bedrails at all. Now I know that bedrails are controversial. But it's not like they had all low beds with mats on the floor. Just normal-height hospital beds with no rails, not even 2. So I asked the DON why, and she said it was corporate policy. When I asked if they have a lot of falls out of bed, she said, "Yes. We have a lot of falls. We just accept that". My mouth fell open.
