Nurse to patient ratios

  1. We are a step down unit. The patients we take care of range from CP r/o MI to vents. We take all drips except paralyzing drugs. If units are full we get any unstable patients from floors. I was wondering what the nurse to patient ratiio at other hospitals are, and do you seem to disagree with the medicus indicators.

    For our step down the policy is no more than 1:5.
