Hi everyone. I have a question I live in VA, and work at a well know hospital here in Med-surg/stepdown. I am wondering how to find or what the state board says about the patient to nurse ratio in medsurg. My manager told me in the interview it would be 1:5 or 1:6 at the most, but I have been hearing talk about 1:7, although she denies that I would ever have 1:7 because its against state board policy, I can't find the policy on the BON website. Maybe I am looking at it wrong, but I want to see it in writing, so I can have something to back me up. Any feedback would be great.
