I recently started a new job. We get 6 patients on days and nights gets 6 patients as well. Makes no sense. Everywhere I ever worked days got less patients as so much more is going on during the day. I work for 13 hours straight, I can barely take a break and can go 13 hours without even getting a drink. The hospital talks about evidence based practices, but it is also evidenced based that having less patients save lives and outcomes are better. They ignore that part, but will implement practices that are time consuming when you have 6 patients. I do get it, but how about giving us less patients so we can give better care.
