On the psych floor of my facility it is one nurse and 4 aides to 50 patients, on the long term care floor it is the same. On the Acute care floor where all of our peg tubes, ventilators and dialysis patients are it is 2 nurses and 4 aides to 50 patients. I come home exhausted most night, and worried sick that what if I missed something because there was so much to do! The ratios at my job are horrible, and it makes it very difficult to form relationships with your patients because you have no choice but to be in and out as quickly as possible!
