Acute psych RN ratios don't apply to private hospitals?

  1. I just got a job as an RN at an acute psych hospital. The California law states the ratio should only be 1:6 for acute psych. However, I get up to 15 patients some days.

    How can the hospital get around the nurse ratio California law?

    It is a private for profit hospital.
