On average 1:5/ 1:6 maximum
In California med-surg is 4:1 if med/surg-tele. It’s 5:1 if no tele/low acuity.
I work at a level one trauma hospital and we are 6:1 every single day regardless if we have techs or not. The most we’ve had to take is 7:1 with no techs. That’s nights and day shift.
Metro MN is 4:1 day/eve and 5:1 nights
I worked on the telemetry/Covid unit and always had five. Too many if all five are Covid positive. I got floated to Med/Surg a few times. Mostly five, but once I had six. Six is too many if they are all very needy and they were!
Hey there! On average 6 but lately 7…I’m so tired!!
1:5/6 is average on med surg floor
I think it all depends on where you work. Might have up to 7 patients, depending on staffing. Everywhere is short now. Thanks, Covid.
Anywhere between 1:4 to 1:6
10 pts per shift
Average of 1:15 patients per shift...
1:3-6 depending on acuity
We would have up to 8 sometimes 9 on bad days... but anything above 6 is a bad day
6. If you have any discharges they replace the patients within an hour or less.
Depending on staffing. Sometimes 9:1, sometimes 6:1
In dunedin Fl I was having 8 surgicals post op
