Hi guys! I'm new to this board. I recently graduated from nursing school and passed my boards in September. I interviewed on a maternity unit last week. Tomorrow I am going in for part 2 which is a simulation. (I'm hoping the patients will only be postpartum as I will be working on a postpartum unit)I'm trying to go over all potential postpartum complications. I'm assuming hemorrhage could be a big possibility. I'm also looking over cystitis, hematoma, mastitis, pulmonary embolism or thrombophlebitis. Any other ideas?My question: As I'm looking over my nclex list of interventions for hemorrhage, the book is stating to 1- massage fundus, 2-take blood pressure (shock) 3- call doctor 4- start fluids. When i was speaking to a couple of nurses at work today, they advised me to always call the doctor first b/c of shock. So i guess my question is-- if my patient is hemorrhaging, wouldn't my first concert be to STOP the bleeding by massaging the fundus and then taking the BP to report to the doctor? All other advice is welcome. Thank you for your feedback!
