Staffing Standards by Scope, Ratios, and Acuity

This class examines CNA-sponsored, uniform, safe-staffing standards, which mandate staffing by individual patient acuity with the RN ratios as the minimum, and identifies strategies for implementing and enforcing these standards.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Concisely outline the statutory mandates on staffing by scope, ratios, and acuity.
  2. Recognize patient care standards and assignments which place your patients at risk.
  3. Initiate steps or actions necessary to promote safe assignments.
  4. Activate collective patient advocacy strategies including the use of Title 22 ratios and acuity mandates.
