    Hi.  I work on a mixed pediatric unit (multispecialty/general pediatrics & heme/onc/BMT). We are currently in the process of reevaluating our staffing ratios.  Can anyone share their nurse to patient staffing ratios?  I am particularly interested in staffing of hematology, oncology, and stem cell transplant patients within mixed units.

     

    Thanks!
