Nurse:Patient

As per the Intensive Care Society guidelines, Level 3 patients require a registered nurse to patient ratio of a minimum 1:1 to deliver direct care. Level 2 patients require a registered nurse to patient ratio of a minimum 1:2 to deliver direct care.

This is a guide and therefore from time to time, unforeseen circumstances will arise meaning that your loved one may not receive the desired nurse:patient ratio. However, we endeavour to continue to provide a high standard of care and patient safety remains a priority.
