Scheduling elective inductions


How many elective inductions does your ld unit allow a day? We do about 2800 deliveries a year, and have 11 labor rooms. We currently allow 6 total cases a day. I am wondering what units comparable to ours does?

My hospital does about 5500k births/year. We can honestly have anywhere from 5 to 20 inductions for a day and we have 13 labour rooms. We don’t give our patients an actual day for inductions, we now give them a range of days since it’s so insanely busy on the unit.

My hospital does about 4500 deliveries/year, and has 12 labor rooms (NOT enough! LOL).  They allow 5 IOL slots per day--0500, 0700, 2000, 2200, and 2345.
