Good timing

My "drive-through" (a patient who arrives on L&D complete and ready to push) arrived at a time when I could get home and get the turkey in the sink of water to finish thawing.

I actually like drive-throughs...yes, it is disruptive during office hours, but it goes so quickly, I usually end up being only 10-15 minutes behind. And in the middle of the night, I LOVE fast deliveries.

Nurses like drive-throughs too - less charting! My assessment and plan on the written H&P: Labor. Delivery. Gotta love going through the paperwork after the actual event.

Do they have a recording of you saying "push" repeatedly they can play?

Drive by deliveries aren't any easier on the nurse! We still have to do the same admission paperwork, labor paperwork, delivery paperwork and baby paperwork. We just have much less time to get it all done!

This happened to me early this morning! Paged at 12:35 am, hospital at 1:00 am, baby at 1:09 am. Gotta love it. ;)
