Magnesium drips (postpartum) in ICU only or step-down unit

Recently with the increase census on our Mother Baby (postpartum) unit they have been asked to take D/C moms with HTN with Mg gtts. They are unable to do so, the ICU or CVICU is the only other place they can be admitted. Does any one admit to step-down or M/S tele floors? Thank you.
