Just curious what every one's monthly birth rate is at your hospitals? Our average is 300 a month. This month has been really buzy. As of a couple days ago (10 days left in the month) we all ready had 299 births. Just yesterday we had 23 babies in a 24 hour period. this is a lot for us, even for this time of year. Just wondering if others were having more babies than usual.

We usually do about 4,000-4,500 deliveries a year. We have also been unusually busy this year. I've heard from one of our supervisors that if we continue like we are, we'll break 5,000 this year :eek:

Job security I guess, but it sure makes for some crappy, busy, understaffed days. Those figures alones aren't enough to make them break down and give us some extra nurses :rolleyes:

Ugh!! I worked at 2 of those 300+ deliveries a month hospitals (that was the NORM), and I am so so so so SO happy to be at a hospital that averages only about 150 a month!!

Ahhhhhhh.................:).

I work where 65-70 are born a mo. I like this. we actually have time to get to know and follow our patients thru labor-delivery-postpartum and then do couplet care w/them. I would not want to work in a huge hospital that does 300+ a mo. I have friends who have(we have many of them in the Seattle area)......they said it was nothing but a cattle call, and came to the community hospital level for that reason . No thanks, sounds like it would not be for me.....

We're delivering between 7800 and 9600 a year (650 to 800 a month), but I'm in antepartum (29 beds) so the only deliveries I see are the sneaky ones and thankfully they are not at all common.:chuckle :roll
