ratio of charge nurse to patients in facility?

  1. May I know which site that could verify the ratio of patients to charge nurse in California. We are having hard time giving real good quality time and care with our patients because of the load of residents we already have but our bosses seem not to understand the load of work and the care we have to give for only up to 8 hours. Often admission or any urgent situation that comes up consumes already one hour. Does anyone know what site to inquire the State about this matter?
