Just wondering what the current staff ratio is in a well newborn nursery? is it 1 to 8 or 1 to 6?

1:8 or fewer infants per licensed nurse so long as they are well babies.
Recently born or infants with suspected or actual illness such a bili babies, babies with respiratory problems or a fever must be 4 or fewer depending on acuity because in California ACOG guidelines are required for hospital licensure.
