Reply To: Does your facility have NP coverage at night on inpatient unit?
At Children’s MN we now have a “Nocturnist” on the unit. It has proven to be an unbelievable resource for our staff and patients. Most are Staff H/O working overnight. They offer support for patient status changes and education to staff.

Hello, all! I have been a nurse on the H/O unit for over 19 years and 16 of those have been on night shift. The staff is really trying to push for physically present NP night coverage of our inpatient unit. Is this an unreasonable request? Does your facility have night coverage (besides doctor home on call)?
Thank you! Melodi Thompson
