Loyal audiences of National Public Radio (NPR) likely choked on their coffee listening to “Morning Edition” on May 3. Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine recently released the results of a study positing that if medical errors were a disease, they would be the third leading cause of death in the United States, behind only heart disease and cancer.
The release of this study is timely as the National Patient Safety Foundation is holding its Annual Patient Safety Congress in Scottsdale, AZ this week. OBHG will be there, and attendees are invited to visit us at Booth No. 317. Patient safety needs to be front and center of everything we do, and continuing the dialogue is imperative.
The woman who delivers her baby in a car pulled to the side of the road might provide an exciting headline on the local evening news. And while these stories usually have happy endings, they nonetheless represent significant risk for each and every woman who endures such an episode. Fortunately, emergent roadside births are relatively rare.
OBHG believes every patient is best served by a team working in tandem to deliver the best care possible, and we occasionally have hospital-based opportunities for experienced, passionate Certified Nurse Midwives. OBHG representatives will be exhibiting in Albuquerque, NM, for the American College of Nurse-Midwives Annual Meeting from May 22-26. We invite any CNMs to stop by our table and say hello.
