Days 4-6

Nights 5-7

It was after a crappy short staffed shift of 10 each that I was ready to look elsewhere. Can't imagine 13!

Our unit is a rural OB with Postpartum and triage included. Labor- 1-2 mostly 1. Postpartum - up to 6 patients or 3 couplets. Triage- 3 patients at a time usually is my max.

Anywhere up to 6 on medical/onco. 4 to 5 is usual. Granted, we also don't always have a tech. I've had 5 to myself before.
