FYI... I moved to a Union hospital on West Coast in 2014. I can't even describe how much better our working conditions are. We're taken care of, our assignments have been fantastic and that really reflects in patient care we provide. 

Thanks for updating!!!!! That is insane the conditions you used to have, so pleased its improved for you!

Do you know if things ever changed were u use to work at? Do you keep up with staff that stayed?

That assignment sounds crazy, and we have some pretty crazy assignments in my NICU. I’m in a 63 bed level III and very rarely are patients 1:1, only if they were actively crashing or very very sick. A HFO/NO would usually be on a 2 baby assignment..for instance last night I had a PPHN baby on NO/pressors and a 29 weeker on CPAP. Tonight we’re short and I have the 29 weeker, an old ex prem who is now 6 months old, trach  vented and waiting for discharge and an older prem who had NEC on CPAP and has ostomy refeeds, lots of fluid balance stuff...this is a typical assignment although it would be 2 babies if we weren’t short. It’s not uncommon for us to have 4 feeder-growers either.
