We do roughly 750-800 deliveries/year (small community hospital with 110 beds)
OB on-call (but not necessarily in-house) 24/7
we also have 24/7 anesthesia coverage on-call for OB (but not necessarily in-house---they are about 10 minutes out at night).
If there is a high-risk labor situation, MDA stays in-house, along with OB. until the patient is delivered. (VBAC being the main high-risk labor that requires in-house OB and MDA).
