Like I said in my other post, my request was
My idea for the Executive Summary assignment has to do with the nurse to patient ratios. I work in a Level 1 Trauma hospital and I believe that the workload can get a bit too much at times. I work at nights and I still get burned out. I believe the day shift nurses barely get any charting or work done at times since they are so busy during the day. During the nights we must do most of the things that did not get done during the day on addition to our tasks. I feel that the care that I provide to my patients is affected by my large workload. Our hospital also gives our nursing assistants a large patient to nurse ratio too so at times we do not have help from them either because they may be busy. My suggestion would include more help on the floor for the nurses if cutting the patient to nurse ratio is impossible. I believe by employing about two Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) on the floor during every shift, it can be very helpful in the patient’s care.
