Staffing ratios: Arkansas LTC - anyone know?

  1. I work in LTC in Arkansas, and am wondering what the nurse/patient and cna/patient ratios are. We've been told all sorts of answers, but I had last heard that it's 1 cna for 6 residents...but if this is right, then we are usually understaffed! Am wondering what the norms are for nurses and cna's. Anyone know?

    The ratios are different in the LTC's depending on the total number of residents in the facility. A good way to find out is to call the OLTC and ask to make sure. Each shift is different as well.
