  1. So do you only check reflexes ect on your initial assessment. I’m not sure if your pt is there for let’s say a Previn....why you would do these checks q 4 hrs?

    Placenta Previa/vag bleeding

    So I’m hoping some of the experienced Ante nurses can add their thoughts. Im upset that my “accusers” won’t say anything to me, but run to the manager. Also it’s like they’re being protected. I feel they should come to me if they think I’m not doing something the way they think I should? how can I change my practice IF they don’t say what they are thinking. im thinking I need to approach the NM and tell her this but honestly, I’m afraid. I’ve been done dirty in the past by management and I want to retire from this job!

    Insulin drips patients on L&D

    So....we use a program called Endotool which tells us, according to what the BS is...what to set the drip to and when to check it next. I have 4 pts. Not allowed to go higher if I’m running ENDOTOOL.

    Hello? Anyone?

    Placenta Previa/vag bleeding

    um No. I was told that I'm not showing I have "critical thinking" skills but I don't know who's said this. I'm going to have to explain what I would do if a patient called out bleeding. If the patient was managed by the teaching staff then I would call them to call asap, put the patient back in bed and place monitors. What else do I need to do? Besides getting patient ready to go over to L&D.

    So you’re working at night in a hospital and have a placental previa patient. At 0200 she calls out to say she’s bleeding. What do you do? Besides going in to her and getting her back in bed?

    Exactly!!! So fellow OB nurses...how do you run your insulin?

    What? It’s the program my hospital requires with an insulin drip. We have OB pts w uncontrolled DM. Not safe in pregnancy!

    So.....our protocol requires 2 PIVs for pts on ENDOTOOL. I’ve gotten pts from L&D with insulin, NS0.9 and D545 all in one PIV. I thought Insulin was Only compatible with NS?
