Apr 23, '03Occupation: L & D RN Joined: Apr '03; Posts: 28We did 7 deliveries in one 12 hr. shift and that is with two RNs, no unit secretary and two MDs. Our feet did not touch the ground that day. The pace was hectic, patients just came in three or four at a time. We have 5 LDRPs so the pp overflowed onto M/S and the nurses there took care of them. WHEW!!!

Our well-baby nursery frequently gets 10-15 babies or more in a 24 hour period, but our nurseries usually only get 1 per nursery per shift, and sometimes not even that. I was assigned to Level II with a pull nurse from PostPartum, and she couldn't take admits. Hoo, boy...I'm so GLAD I'm off tonight!!! I'm beat.
