MHA Keystone: Obstetrics (OB)

Problem
Currently in the United States, an estimated three injuries occur for every 1,000 births, some of which are preventable. Neonatal adverse outcomes include preventable morbidities such as respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis, neonatal intensive care unit admission, hospitalization for more than five days and rehospitalization.

What We Are Doing
Michigan hospitals began implementing evidence-based best practices and timely interventions in 2008 to decrease early elective deliveries and coordinate a safe progression of labor and appropriate responses to fetal distress. Hospitals are now focusing on engaging and educating patients about the best options for childbirth, including labor management, labor induction, possible cesarean birth and the potential for postpartum hemorrhage and preeclampsia.
