In my current facility we take 3 couplets. This is manageable when we have 3 healthy couplets, but this is never usually the case. We have sick Mom's down here with high BPs, drug use, scant prenatal care etc etc. Subsequently our babies are SGA, LGA, GDM and req blood sugars, we give IV abx amp/gent to newborns on our PP floor that were exposed to GBS and mom not covered. We have no techs, no lactation at night and we are responsible for all Mom and infant care, VS, baby baths, hearing screens, 24 hr testing, CBC/bilis etc etc. Also, my floor take GYN surgeries and sometimes you can have a mixed group. So to be fair, it really depends on your population and what the RN is responsible for. When I lived in CA, we had 4 couplets and it was a whole different ball game with techs, hearing screens were outsourced, labs came and did our blood work and PKUs too. Find out what these PP/Mother-Baby nurses do and consider the question again.
