    MVU's

    How often are you calculating your MVU's, we are being to told to document every 30 min...:

    I calculate like Envy's post describes. At my hospital 180-240 is adequate. As for charting, if pt is on pit they get an exam page done q15min (including fhr and iupc/mvu).

    Most nights one pt on pitocin and another pt of some sort (pp mag/pre-e, ptl on mag, induction w/cervidil, svd or c/s-recovery, just depends), a good night just that one pit pt, a bad night, 2 pit pt's
