- Oct 12, '11 by melmarie23the charge nurse from the previous shift makes the assignment for my med/surg job. For my L&D job, we meet at the beginning of shift and pow wow and decide who we want/request patients. Typically if we've delivered a mom/baby from the previous shift, we will take them post partum and pick up 2 more mom/baby couplets. If we've done post partum for the past few shifts, we switch to labor. It works really well.
