Joint Commission urges action on maternal safety

The Joint Commission, on August 21, 2019, published an R3 report (requirement, rationale, reference) on maternal safety.

JCHO Report on Maternal Safety

In this report, they urge various actions to improve the safety of maternal care during child birth. In particular, they recommend patients are screened for hemorrhage risk (something AlertWatch:OB automatically evaluates once a minute), and that there is a process for responding to hemorrhages (our software alerts for MEWS criteria with additional filtering for reduced alarm fatigue).

We are glad they are bringing attention to maternal safety, and look forward to being a part of the overall effort to solve this epidemic.
