Up to 64 beds. Usually around 20-30 males and 12-20 females. Two RNs. Three detox techs. Today, we had six patients with recent suicidal ideation, and another four who had to be on behavioral contracts for various issues. I'm thinking I need to find a new place to work.

Inpatient ARTS detox unit. 21 beds, for day/evening shift we get 2-3 RNs, 1 to 2 MHTs. We do not utilize LPNs for some unknown reason; the rest of our psych hospital does, but not the ARTS unit. Our max ratio is 3 RNs and 2 MHTs. Night shift gets 1-2 RNs and 1 MHT.
