Reply To: Patient to RN ratios based on pts reason for hospitalization
We are typically in a 1:3 ratio assignment for all of the scenarios unless someone is very sick/high acuity and needs to be in a 1:2 assignment, which we can do on our unit when possible. I hope that helps.

Inquiring as to your staffing ratios when pt is hospitalized for various reasons. We are a mixed Peds floor including Medical/Surgical/Inpt/Outpt/PICU/Sedations/Heme and Onc. What is your ratio for Induction Pts? Is ratio changed based on low vs standard vs high risk? What is your ratio for Febrile Neutropenia pts? What is your ratio for pts receiving non-induction phase chemo? Does this ratio change based on the complexity of the regime or increased monitoring required based on medications given? Thanks for your help regarding these questions.
