Increase Nurse to patient ratios

Last Edited by TIM KELLEY

Increased NURSE TO PATIENT RATIO FROM 5:1 to 3:1 while returning the 100 residency doctor spots cut this year. My Grandfather DR Alan Brown ran Sick Kids for 40 years cutting the infant mortality rate in half by insisting the Premier pasteurized milk BUT also insisted that patients received care SAFE ratios mean patients leave without complications, with minimal pain and alive His Doctors provided the procedures , however ever nurses sustained lives . NOW burn out, complications, pain and often times additional operations or staph infections occur due to impossible ratios hitting 7: 1 during evenings
