Disturbing Report Highlights Importance of Patient Safety

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.

Certified Nurse-Midwives Fill Widening Access Gap

By Kristine Hartvigsen on May 23rd, 2016

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.
