What is the ratio to nurse to CNA/CST? Or how many CNAs typically work a 30 bed unit?

Read 14 answers

5 patients per RN, if staff shows up. 90% agency so good luck getting people to work.
10 patients to 1 CNA, unless agency staff does show up. You May have more.

There is a need for CNA in the medical field the pay should match on what our job description required in most facility thst why the turnover rate is very HIGH plus with transportation us getting there if it 20 miles or more without us how can your busines run. Please consider.

I have always had 10 or more patients. We were a 38 bed unit and we woukd have 3 CNA's to 35 patients. It's just ridi ulous. Then you get yelled at bc you can't be everywhere at once. Team work is terrible and you are not respected nor valued for the work you do.

Nurses have 4-5 patients on med/surg, 3-4 on step down and 1-2 in the ICU. CNA’s have 8-10 on a normal shift. If one calls off nurses usually take 1 primary.

Sometimes a CNA will have 20 patients,or the entire building,they are always short, with a staff turnover of almost 100 per cent

Depends, you are supposed to have 8 patients per a CNA but if u r short staffed there have been a few times I took a double work load & had 16 patients with one other CNA also having 16 patients.

CNA’s can generally expect to have 7-11 patients any given day depending on census.

3 techs for anything under 18 and 4 techs for 24 which is our max.

Look, I don't know about other locations; but in Orlando, CNAs are VERY appropriately staffed. We have 8 patients per CNA...which in my professional opinion is generous.
