CMQCC Involved in National Efforts to Reduce Maternal Mortality & Morbidity

From OBGYN News:  A national group that includes ob.gyns., nurse-midwives, anesthesiologists, and other providers has released a safety bundle with 13 steps that hospitals can use to prevent, recognize, and better manage obstetric hemorrhage.  The new safety bundle draws on evidence from several existing evidence-based guidelines and the work of safety collaboratives in California and New York. The idea behind the bundle’s release is to standardize the response to obstetric hemorrhage across hospitals, whether they deliver hundreds of babies a year or thousands. Not every hospital will have the same approach, but they should all have a standardized response that is triggered by excessive bleeding during delivery.
