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

- 0Mar 10, '10 by DallaThe 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.
