My unit has had kids 4 days in April. In the beginning there were some covid19+ kids, now there are none needing admission (hooray!) But there's nothing else either! We're floating to the maternity/nicu side of the service or to help out as "helping hands" on the floors or simply furloughed. I'm working ICU since I used to work there and another nurse is back on her med surg floor. I'm grateful for the experience to fall back on.

YAY! I'm back to work.....not full hours yet, but almost. We are doing COVID antibody testing. TONS of it. Every day, all day. So, pretty much, I'm a nurse turned phlebotomist. LOL.

We never furloughed anyone, but we did cancel every traveler and PRNs have been removed from the schedule.

We did rotate a lot of nurses with adult experience back to the adult world. PICU nurses back to adult ICU, peds onc to adult onc, peds floor to med/surg, et cetera.
