Ok question. I have only worked in L&D in teaching hospitals..and am not considering taking a position at a small hospital with No residents. No 24hr anesthesia...but an OB in the house.
The RNs do all assessments concerning admissions..verify ruptured membranes ect themselves. No NICU..so if baby comes out bad I will be doing the resusitation..and then shipping that baby Out.
No high risk..but we have all had perfect labors go bad at delivery..
Its alot of responsiblity to Not have that back up..and I'm a little nervous. Should I be?
