We have separate units for L&D, antepartum, and postpartum/nursery.
On L&D, we have:
14 LDR rooms (private)
3 triage beds (all in one room) - but we are building a new triage area, expanding it to 6 beds
4 bed PACU area - also used as overflow for triage/LDR
2 OR's (a 3rd one is just storage for now, but we plan on utilizing it again soon)
We labor, deliver, recover (1-2 hrs), triage, do our own c/s, and have high risk ante/postpartum patients. As soon as they are stable enough for transfer, they are off the unit, because of our high number of patients coming in.
We have 2 separate antepartum units for stable patients. One has 7 private beds, the other has semi-private rooms (not sure on the # of beds, but it's probably around 14-16?) where they have antepartum, stable postpartum, post GYN surgical patients also.
We have a separate postpartum unit, with 32-35 beds (I think?). It's being renovated right now, so some beds are closed off, and some patients are being diverted to the semi private antepartum unit (see above).
We have 2 nurseries - one regular nursery (main nursery), and one overflow nursery that is primarily used for circumcisions. The overflow nursery does not have windows to look in, but the main one does, thus the utilization of the overflow for circs.
We have a separate level 3 NICU, about 35 beds or so. They have room for overflow if needed.
We do about 400 deliveries per month, but do a huge number of high risk patients both ante and postpartum. We get all of the transfers that other hospitals do not accept. We turn no one away. Sometimes we get the transfers stable enough, and far enough in gestation, to be transported back to their home hospital to deliver their babies. This is rare, but it does happen.
