Staffing ratio?

  1. Hey guys,

    i am from California and might be moving to Washington DC next year. Just wanted to know what hospital you guys recommend and is there a nurseatient staffing ratio in ICU? Also if you could include possibly include salary expectation for 4 years ICU experience from top LA university hospital?

    Hey, I'm not an ICU nurse, but as a peds and adult med/surg nurse, I would recommend you look into Georgetown. For peds and adults their nurse-to-pt ratio are some of the best in the city. For med-surg it's 4-5 pts, which I think is wonderful. I've noticed that most hospitals down here pay ICU nurses at least $2/hr more than their med-surg counter parts.

    Good luck
