I'm interviewing for a position on an ante/gyn unit next week. They don't take PP patients although I could be cross trained to float there.
I've worked a lot with pregnant pts in the community (as a PHN and in a clinic) and also have experience with breast/cervical cancer case mgmnt. Just wondering: what types of things to you see/do on this type of unit?
I think I have a pretty good idea, but I'd like to hear what someone who actually works there has to say!
Also, are you happy with your job? I'm just wondering what nurse/pt ratios are like.
my unit is LDR (not PP unless on mag or highly unstable) and ante as well, physically on same unit with slight separation, same mgmt, nurses, etc (which i agree with for a multitude of reasons)
our ante has the usual-pprom, abruptions, previas, ptl, pyelo, and medical problems as well-pneumonia, appendicitis, asthma, uncontrolled dm, kidney stones, etc.
staffing? depends on the patients. 1:1 if necessary, no more than 1:4.
