Hi!  I am on a ortho specific unit at a dedicated orthopedic hospital.  I am looking for feedback on what others have experienced with staffing ratios for fresh surgical patients from pacu.  Our unit only takes 3 'fresh' surgicals.  It is an old rule and with many of these patients being done outpatient, these numbers are bound to change.

 

Thanks!

Hi!

I am from a very similar background.  Have worked on an all ortho floor in a dedicated orthopedic inpatient center.  Our unit does not have a rule in place as to how many fresh post-ops you can have on a team.  It is not uncommon to have 5 or 6 fresh post-ops at my facility.
