The Kleberg LDRP/Nursery department has 6 LDRP rooms, one triage room with capacity for two patients and the OB OR. The unit is staffed by Registered Nurses responsible for all areas including Labor and Delivery, Antepartum, Postpartum and Nursery. The volume varies by time of year, but averages 26 births per month and 45 outpatient visits per month. We also have a Level 2 nursery offering the benefit of a higher level of care without family having to travel. Our babies stay with mom from delivery to discharge in most cases. We are a small LDRP and Nursery department with a grasp of "the big picture". The team of nurses is engaged and high functioning and have the opportunity to participate on an active Unit Based Council, and in regional and local committees.
