Patient Ratios

  1. [font=book antiqua]hey all! i was wondering what the patient ratios were for various settings. after we were hurricaned away in 2004 and moved to tennessee, i only had 6 patients and that is the limit for all the hospitals here. nursing homes are sickeningly high, 25 or so, and i wanted to see if anything has changed since i have been gone. i plan to travel home after i get my rn (within 6 mos.) and am curious.
