Nurse:Patient Ratio

  1. Hi I would like to make a general enquiry about how you do it in your units. As an RN how many ventilated patients do you nurse? Where can i get literature to back that ratio? Please help me if you can, i a=would really appreciate it.

    On my unit, if you have a vented kid, then you usually only have one other easy baby to take care of. When staffing is short and your vented kid is stable/chronic and on no IVs or anything like that, you might have 2 other super easy babies (all NG feeds q3h).
