    We keep mag pp pt. in the LDRP room if she's an svd. For C/S mag pp, then we move her to the floor (around the corner) where we have gyn , C/S, and pp overflow. It is all the same staff, so ofter the nurse she already has stays w/ her. Care is usually 1:1 pp or maybe the Mag pt. and one more "simple" pp pt. We are level one w/ 6 LDRP's and 12 overflow private rooms. We have 650-700 deliveries annually. Baby can room in only if support person is present.
