I currently work in an ED with a 1:4 nurse to patient ratio, 1:2-3 if we are holding ICU patients. Can you guys give me an idea of the ED ratios in WA, especially Vancouver area hospitals? Thanks in advance.

Same as you stated unless the halls are packed...potentially could get more than 4 pt's but this is not the norm. If you have a very unstable patient could be with that patient 1:1. I've heard that in CA the floor ratio's are a lot better but the ED/ICU are very similar to WA.
