Well, I agree with you as well. But even if the staffatient ratio is good, you also have to wonder about rooms, etc. If they see so many people that they need more rooms, feel like rushing the patients to get them out of laboring rooms, etc.

I don't know if that is really an issue, maybe I'm over thinking things. But I assume a hospital doesn't normally expect 40+ births a day and wouldn't have that many rooms? I don't know, I've only been to a birthing center so far and they only had 9 rooms. When we left, they were full.
