  4. H & H
    I have had a few. One was a PC/S who, in report, I was told had bled a bit in recovery. She had just passed a 200ml clot prior to transfer, yet the OB did not want to transfer the patient to us on...

  5. Female cathing
    "Aim high" is what I was always taught and that has helped a lot. Especially the super swollen postpartum patients I usually cath.

    Nope. Most days I have 4 couplets, there have been times I've had 5. Night shift at our hospital, if L&D isn't super busy, usually starts out 4's and 5's. We're not allowed to go into overtime and we...
