In a recent article published in Parents Magazine, the author describes one woman’s miscarriage experience in a hospital emergency department. The woman recounts the handling of her miscarriage as “procedural” and noted the lack of empathy from hospital staff.
The author describes how hospitals can do better when it comes to pregnancy loss and gives examples of what some hospitals are doing to ensure hospital staff handle these situations in an appropriate way. She writes that TriStar Centennial Women’s Hospital, for instance, has a separate OB emergency department staffed by OB/GYNs around the clock. Ob Hospitalist Group manages and staffs this dedicated unit, collaborating with hospital staff and community OB/GYNs to elevate the standard of women’s healthcare.
