What's the nurse-pt ratio for postpartum units in California?

  1. If I do go into postpartum I was wondering what the ratios are. I know you deal with couplets but how many patients in total are we talking about here for nurses in California? I'm from the Bay Area so I'm just wondering.

    Your input is greatly appreciated.

    For couplet care 4 couplets, so 8 patients total. Sometimes may have twins and nicu mom, still 8 patients total. Just postpartum moms the following link says only 6 patients.
    Hope that helps!
