Help!! I am a new RN grad, and work on a surg-med unit. All the nurse managers care about every shift is their staff numbers, which changes based on census at any given moment. It's common for us to have 6 patients each, and not have an aide, or a transport person. Can anyone else give me input on this situation? I feel like I am not able to get everything done, especially because I work alot of day shifts, and most of my patients are complete cares.
