I work in a small community hospital which handles mostly low risk pregnancies. We transport high risk stuff...especially preterm moms to a tertiary center about 1 1/2 hours away. Of course being stable is of the utmost importance for transfer, but lately the whole process is giving me the heebees. I personally don't go on the transports because of a medical condition that prevents me from riding in the back of anything....but I do have to find staff to go on many occasions. My question is....does anyone do this kind of transfer...and who goes? We literally find a nurse (OB trained) who can go, and put her in the back of an ambulance with a big bag and two ambulance drivers and that is it. Though these moms are stable, we all know that ANYTHING can happen at anytime, and I have nightmares about being in an ambulance with no help, delivering a 30 week kid...and having a post partum bleed or something. I know that is dramatic, but hey....it can happen. Just want to get a sense of what others do, and if there is some standard of care for transporting moms. Thanks!!
