Hi I was wondering what the norm for a subacute rehab normally is. I'm a new LPN and have worked at my nursing facililty for a month now. At the moment I have 14 patients, and there's 1 aide and myself. I find myself scrambling to get things done. Call lights are always going off, and I have a very good CNA that tries his best to answer call lights fast but I usually have to help. The admissions person said our unit will be full, 17, by the end of the week but they are unwilling to give us either an extra nurse or an extra aide. Just wondering what you guys handle?
