OB hospitalist partnership elevates patient safety by implementing consistent standard of care
Like many hospital departments, when it comes to the labor and delivery unit, each physician makes his or her own clinical decisions based on their training and experience. Hospital leadership trusts that OB/GYNs are practicing the most up-to-date, evidence-based medicine from The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). But what happens if they aren’t using the most current best practices? Patient safety can suffer, and as a result, medical malpractice risk increases. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-Denton in Denton, TX, sought Ob Hospitalist Group's partnership to help standardize protocols and elevate patient safety.
