Hi, all you wonderful O&G nurses!
I have an assignment to do (the last one before I graduate!) and we have specifically been advised to use diverse resources, including getting feedback from other nurses. As it's specific to your specialty, I've posted here instead of the student forum.
I am really asking those of you who deal with post-partum mum and bub couplets. In the ward I am on, midwives take 4-6 patients/couplets each, and carry out the mother and baby checks and give medications. Other things, such as education, assisting with showers for new Caesars or changing beds, is done if needed, and not if not.
Different places do things differently, so I have a few questions:
How do you organise your time/shift?
Do you have certain tasks you must complete each shift?
Do co-workers mind if you have not completed tasks (e.g., mother visiting baby in NICU for whole shift, so could not do mother check)?
Do you have any recommendations for new nurses/midwives trying to organise their shifts?
Thanks so much to any of you who have a few minutes to help me out!
