    We are in the midst of reviewing staffing ratios and needs assessment for a 20-bed Hem/Onc unit. During the review, we would like to see how other organizations are staffing to review along with our internal data. Please take a moment to review and respond. Thanks in advance.
    This unit is Hem/Onc only.

    How many beds are on your Hem/Onc unit? 24

    What is your avg. nurse/patient ratio on days and nights? 1:2 for SCT and 1:3 for Hem/Onc

    Is the normal practice for the charge nurse to not have a patient assignment on days and/or nights  Yes

    What is your normal staffing practice for IL2/antibody infusions 1:1 to start and then 2:1 if patient is stable
