Nurse-patient ratio?

  1. I am a swedish nurse working at the night shifts on a telemetry unit in Sweden.
    At night I am responsible for 11-15 patients.

    How is it in Florida, Orlando?
    Are there any nurses who can tell me how the nurse-patient ratio are on their hospital at the night shift?

    I cant tell you about Orlando but I work on the east coast of Florida and work the night shift on Ortho and the maximum I ever have is 8 (and that is hard going on post-op night) but I usually have 6. (5 if I am shift Leader)
