We take pp mag patients on our antepartum unit.   What is staffing guidelines for these patients.   We do not chart or assess the babies.   The postpartum nurses do that.  However....these mothers do call out for us for help with the babies.

Off the top of my head, without consulting the AWHONn staffing guidelines, a postpartum mom on Mag should be a part of a group of no more than 3 women, assuming the other two are stable antepartum women.

That was how it was at the hospital I worked in as a postpartum RN. Either a mag pt. and a m/b couplet, a mag pt. and two NICU moms (aka babies in NICU), or two mag pt.'s.
