I’m allocated to an orthopaedics ward that made me very anxious as I’m a medical nurse, however, 2 weeks later, I’m still breathing.
As a surgical ward, it is very fast and busy. People come and go. There could be 8 discharges and 5 admissions in a day. So just need to speed up yourself. Work is more like running on a treadmill.
The ratio of nurses to patients is about 2:8~12 , depending on the number of discharges.
