The patient to nurse ratio is 40 to 1! The law states that the nurses have one hour before and one hour after the sceduled time to administer the medication. With this ratio and all of the individual needs IT IS IMPOSSIBLE AND UNSAFE! Beware of promises made by the facility. If it takes the nurse longer than the 8 hour shift to complete the tasks, the facility does not pay the nurse for the nurse's time. Consequently, medications are being signed as "given" when they are not. Treatments get signed as "done" and they have not been done.
