On average, HOW many patients do you see in the emergency room per shift?

Depends on the trauma level of the facility. Trauma 1's are typically 60-100 beds. Trauma 4's can be as small as 6-8 beds. The Ratio is usually 3:1 or 4:1 per nurse.

I would see anywhere from 20 on slow days up to 40 on a crazy day. That was for a 12 hour shift.

Depends on the day and if we have any holds waiting for rooms. Per shift the ER I work for sees about 50 pts so about 100 total for a 24 hr period.
