The information about nurse to patient ratio's being disseminated by ONA/ANA/OHA et al, is inaccurate. The ratio is a minimum. The law specifically states that staffing should be improved when the patient acuity and nursing judgement demands it. In addition, the Ohio Patient Protection Act of 2008 (OPPA-ratios) also forbids eliminating other staff to meet the ratio. Other provisions in OPPA are much needed whistleblower protection and limits on the use of technology that interfere with nursing judgement. For more info: http://www.calnurses.org/nnoc/ohio/
