ICU Nursing Staff Ratios

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health now requires all Massachusetts Intensive Care Units (ICUs) to report quarterly Registered Nurse-to-Patient ratios on their websites. Patients in an ICU require a high degree of medical and nursing care. Salem Hospital’s ICU nurses have received advanced training in Critical Care Nursing, and many have received additional degrees and certifications. They specialize in the care of critically ill patients and are trained in the use of equipment that monitors and provides life support to patients.
