I had my first IDDM pt in labor on Pitocin. The orginal order from the OB was LR and clear liquids only. I am still a fairly new RN to labor and I asked another "Seasoned Labor Nurse" about my pt's IV fluids and her management. The "Seasoned" RN told me that all our diabetic pt's are all clear liquids and LR, and told me not to worry about it. I did not listen to her and ended up calling our Diabetic Educator and the family doctor to get different IV fluid orders for my pt, as I was worried that she was going to bottom out. My patient became symptomatic; and had BS in the 50's, good thing I was on top of things already. I was very upset about this incident, and now I am very concerned about with Whom I am working with. This particular RN has been a Labor Nurse for 25+ years. I wanted to know your thoughts?
