That's an incredible NT ratio.   Here in the US I see more like 8:1, with 4:1 for the techs.

As to lazy RNs - ergophobia is a disease that knows no boundary of profession, race or background, except perhaps Asians and Indians (I've never seen a lazy Asian or Indian (spot, not feather) ).

I've already been told Do NOT Touch the machines. They won't even let me turn my chair so I can LOOK at it.

I always carry my little hand held mirror.  It's purpose is to view the machine.  Works great!      :beer1;

I have never seen a nurse sit at the station and ignore a alarm.  However now and then I have seen a nurse jump up and run to a patient who was starting to get in trouble.  One of the most frightening things I have ever seen is the guy next to me was starting to drift off with low blood sugar when one of the nurses jumped up ran to a cabinet and ran to the patient with the biggest dam syringe I have ever seen. I just layer there thinking omg they are going to stick that guy with a elephant needle. Turned out she stuck it in his tubing and the effect was unreal. From pale and pasty to roses cheeks in seconds.
