Does anyone here work as a civilian at Walter Reed? I was recently a patient there and received wonderful care. My 7PM-7AM nurse told me that she had three patients that night, and that is what she usually has. This was on a regular med-surg unit. There was also a tech working...I don't know how many patients she had, and the charge nurse was also out doing rounds and came in and did my blood stick--I was a little dehydrated, so it was tricky. There was also a night resident who checked me.
Is this the actual nurse: patient ratio at WRAMC, or was my Morphine PCA playing tricks with my mind?
