care partnership model

  1. I would like to know if anyone out there is using the care partnership model on their units. This model pairs up a tech with a nurse and the two of you work together all the time. Just curious how it is working on your unit. Thanks caj

    No, we don't have a 1:1 tech to nurse ratio. I'm not sure what the advantage would be in psych to this kind of arrangement. How does it work on your unit?

    Its very common iin sweden, (is a tech a nurses aid?). I get on fine with the wman i work with but shes off on maternity leave soon. It all depends on working with someone god, you can trust, and rely on. Its ok if it works but personally i perfer nurse only wards, they tend to be more professional.

    Sounds like a wonderful idea.
    How many pts to a team? 4,5,6 max I would think.
