I am going to work in a unit where staffing has recently been overhauled. The nursery nurse is not utilized on a regular basis at all. The nursery nurse is only staffed if there is a special care baby that is not stable enough for mother/baby care. The Labor and Delivery nurse is responsible for admitting her own infant and the baby is taken to postpartum with mother following immediate (1-2 hour postpartum) recovery. I am not OK with this at all. Espcecially considering that L&D if frequently short-staffed. What are the thoughts on this? I understand the notion of saving money but I find this absurd. Am I out of line?
