Leave it to the Joint (Commission)

Perinatal Care Outcomes

I'm actually happy to see the Joint Commission put out these Perinatal Performance quality measures.

  • Elective delivery
  • Cesarean section
  • Antenatal steroids
  • Health care-associated blood stream infections in newborns
  • Exclusive breast milk feeding
Go ahead and read through the data that they will be collecting, starting in April 2010. No doubt that this *should* help change some practices that occur in hospitals. Or else, the 'bad docs' will find ways to document around the items that will be collected. But note: they will also be looking at nursing documentation!
