I’m an ED nurse with 1:5 or more in critical care or 1:7/8 in acute care. I’m happy when I go home every morning and my patients are still alive or upstairs with nurses who have a lower nurse patient ratio. It’s very stressful and we lose nurses every month. I’m holding on because I love the people I work with and is close by my house. I pray everyday I am vigilant enough to care for my patients in that environment. Come on someone and regulate nurse patient ratio!!!
