Nursing Staffing Guide

The chart below shows the ratio of nursing staff - Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Health Care Technicians (HCT)-per patient each area. The nursing plans may change, for example, based on the average number of patients per day.

What the data means:

Patient to RN Ratio - Number of patients cared for by one RN nurse; calculated as 24 / RN Hours Per Patient Day.

Percent of Nursing Staff - Number of RN's, LPN's and HCT providing direct nursing care / Total number of RN's, LPN's and HCT's providing direct nursing care.
