You are SO right!! I have almost finished up my orientation, and today I started off with 5, discharged 1, and admitted 2. So I had 6 pretty much the whole day. Having 6 is tough especially if they have a lot going on. For some reason patient load is divided up by room number not by the needs of the patient. For the first time, I left so upset. I really think that the care my patients received today was not the best that I could have gave them. That is why I think I need to go into a whole new area. I am so dissapointed with the health care system.
Gee................ 3-4 patients, no sweat
