My name is Kelly, and I wanted to reach out to my fellow Hem/Onc/BMT colleagues with a couple of questions/concerns.
Our unit has been struggling with staffing-ratios/patient-assignments, and I was hoping you could provide some guidelines and/or grids from other institutions explaining how to staff with appropriate staffing-ratios (for Hem/Onc units).
Additionally, I also would like to know what the typical nurse-to-patient ratio for BMT units is, and guidelines on when to increase that ratio when necessary. (For example, is a 3:1 ratio appropriate for BMT?)
Any information will be greatly appreciative. Hopefully I can present any/all feedback to improve the efficiency of our unit.
Thank you all for being part of this specialty! Sending all the best to all ya’ll.
