A typical day- nurse to patient ratio is 1 to 4 max. Our team on my unit work very well together. Us nurses don't do just nursing, we help the CNA's with AM care.
What I have learned is that you need to be a team in order to be successful unit.
Management- they are around when a problem arises
My co-workers- wouldn't trade them in, love to work with all of my team members
Hardest part of the job- seeing the population getting younger every year, working short staffed, not being able to fix everyone of my patients- even though I try my hardest
Most enjoyable- seeing patients from my unit who come in directly from ICU at the Acute Care Hospital come back to visit
great team and unit to work on
