Are you talking before or after delivery?
Before delivery, pt should be on continuous fetal monitoring.
After delivery, we have had pt's transferred to ICU, (reluctantly on our part and theirs!) Needless to say, there's many phone calls between the units.
Our ICU is comfortable about running the Mag, but not comfortable with the post partum aspect.
We check vitals q1hour/pulse ox, mag levels q6hours, reflexes q1hr.
We also use electronic charting, so once we set up the careplan in the computer ICU can just continue following it.
Most of our Mag patients have returned to us with 12 hours.
