I am on the hunt to begin something new in my nursing career. I was blessed enough to get three offers this week. I turned down the straight up med/surg unit and am leaning towards working in a hospital on a rehab type floor. (its called skilled care unit? kind of like long term care, kind of like rehab per the manager). Sorry if I sound clueless, when I applied thought it was med/surg. The manager said most patients are IV free, no trachs and not a lot of feeding tubes. Now here is my question. It is a twenty bed unit.... Two nurses and one cna. So I could have about 10 patients. This scares me only because I keep thinking med/surg and that would be way too many...I'd be comfortable with 5-6 patients maybe 7 on nights. But these patients are obviously less acute. Any thoughts? Is this a safe load? I also like it because manager says I can float to med/surg if I'd like. Seems ok, but just want some advice. Thank you for any help!
