Do you or your team members attend deliveries? - Page 2Register Today!

Wow! So if you're first admission (not just the delivery nurse, as in your second example), you go to every delivery just in case of an admit? I'm wondering how you get work done on those nights with multiple deliveries!
As far as I've been told (and keep in mind that orientation starts next week, so this info could change), it doesn't sound like we'll be intubating or doing the UL's, PAL's, or PICC's. The new place has an NNP present (24 hrs, I believe) as well as having interns/residents, and possibly an attending neo available. I'm interested to see what my role will be!

We usually have an NNP and always a Neo in house, but they don't go to the deliveries unless requested or if the kid is really, really sick. At other places, usually just a pedi resident. Not sure how your facility will be, but first admission is like being in charge....you can't give it away.....or bribe your way out of it. Everyone must do it.....it makes the night fly!!

If they call a delivery somewhere else in the hospital, say the floor or ER, or wherever then 2 of us go with the team with the transport isolette and our transport bag.
