    What is the usual nurse and cna ratio/patient on a sub-acute rehab unit?
    When I did subacute rehab at a nursing home, we typically had one CNA for every 15 residents.

    As the nurse, I had 15 to 17 residents on days and up to 34 residents on night shift.

    In acute rehab hospital I have 8, but usually goes up to 9 sometimes 10. CNAs usually have 8-12.

    Rehab unit in nursing home I had 11-17 depending on the census. CNAs usually had 8-9.

    When I did subacute rehab in a nursing home, I passed meds, did all admissions, completed treatments, wound care, finger sticks, patient care, and so forth.

    The rehab facility I am working at now has two RNs - each with a maximum of 17 patients and 2 CNAs to care for them. The RN does admissions, discharges, hospital transfers, blood sugars, medications, treatments, doctor calls, lab draws, faxes, telephone calls, input orders into the computer after the unit clerk leaves at 5 pm, checks in medications arriving from pharmacy delivery, assessments on at least 1/3 of the patients and their medicare charting, and once in a great while, we actually get to chat with a patient and their families.
