:uhoh21: I work in OB. Recently had bad baby born - come to find out that some of the nursery nurses who attend deliveries are NOT NRP certified. I watched in horror a few weeks ago as one nursery nurse did not know how to do chest compressions etc., I jumped in to help, but she was lost.
I addressed this to management and they replied that "well, usually the neonatologist is present with a delivery." This is not true, and does it matter? The nurse should still be NRP certified. How can you come to a delivery for a baby and not be NRP certified? It blows my mind!
Any input, suggestions appreciated! Thanks for letting me blow off steam :angryfire :angryfire
