I don't do tele but....
We have two wings (mother-baby), north hall and south hall. north-hall has 24 beds, south-hall has 21; if both sides are full, they stay in their labor rooms but south-hall nurses care for them, as the two units are next to each other. We have antepartum, postpartum/mother-baby, and north-hall has the occasional gyn pt. North-hall usually is where the higher-acuity patients are.
North-hall usually has a free charge. South-hall is where the unit coordinator is. The UC (we call her the "uck") makes bed assignments, makes assignments for the next shift, & fights any fires that need fighting. She also functions as charge nurse for south-hall, although there is a co-charge who has a full pt. load & can act as charge if UC isn't around. But it all depends on who's in charge. There are some charge nurses/UC's who will set up rooms, help assess babies on nights, page/talk with the docs, watch out for your patients while you're getting a new admit, etc. There are others who will sit on their tails and watch you running around like a headless chicken while they are piddling on the Internet. Most are great. Some will not even take a lunch break unless everyone on the floor has eaten. It's just a couple that I hate to see in charge.
On occasion, charge nurses/UC's will take patients, but they don't usually have a full load unless we are just overwhelmed.
