It definitely depends on the hospitals setup. If it's an LDRP, well then you have to do L&D.
Not necessarily. I've worked at facilities that had LDRPs, and there were still nurses who only did PP. Just because the mother doesn't change rooms doesn't mean she can't be assigned a different nurse after recovery.
As others have said, I've also worked at facilities where L&D and PP were all combined on the same floor, even in rooms right next to each other, and there was still a very distinct division of labor between L&D and PP, and while most nurses were cross-trained, there were some who only did L&D and some who didn't know L&D at all and only did PP. In fact, every facility I've worked at has been that way, and I've only worked for one place that had completely separate L&D and PP units.
