In our September blog post, we detailed two new perinatal Provision Of Care standards. In fact, these new standards require an approach similar to suicide prevention. For example, it requires hospitals to select evidence-based tools, procedures, and guidelines to help shape implementation of the new standards. Use these perinatal safety resources to prepare for the changes that will take effect July 2020.
Perinatal Safety Resources
Published in October, Issue 51 discusses the proactive prevention of maternal death from maternal hemorrhage. In addition, use this Quick Safety and the R3 report as resources as you are planning out your approach to the new standards
The Joint Commission posted these standards on August 21, 2019 in a prepublication version. Our discussions with hospitals indicate planning is still in the very early phase. But, we are now only 7 months away from required implementation. So, it is important to get started.
