Weird. Every contract I’ve taken there has had a great set up, and I only see it when they’re hiring travelers. Mileage varies by hospital ofc. Granted, I work the floor, not ED. ED is very separate from the rest of the hospital, they even have their own charting which the rest of us can’t usually access (for data entry).

And HB1868 would’ve blown away Oregon staffing numbers, even adding CNA ratios. WA senate caved to the hospital lobby and killed it. I believe it would’ve given ED RNs 3? or less, but I’d have to look it up again.

Good ratios attract staff who can (have and will) choose to stop working bedside when ratios suck. And yet here we are with a dead bill.
