Hi everyone! I'm a new RN in L&D and I'm looking for any tips and tricks that anybody could offer. Specifically:
Do you have any tips for doing VEs? One of the nurses on the unit told me to "crawl" with my fingers and it should help - I did find this to be helpful and I'm wondering if anybody has any other tips.
When do you generally page OB or a second set to come for a delivery? As a new grad I'm not so great with judging when is the right time (some of my primips push so well that I'm sometimes scrambling to get OB in the room).
Do you usually call charge first or just page OB? I find that this is hospital dependent and even nurse dependent, we don't really have a policy so I'm just wondering what you do.
And any other tips and tricks that you might find helpful
Thank you so much!
