Obstetric Hemorrhage Project

Obstetric Hemorrhage


The objective of this project is to decrease the rate of severe maternal morbidity attributable to obstetric hemorrhage in Virginia. The working group will utilize the AIM safety bundle to improve hospital practice by addressing needs, providing expertise to adapt the bundle, and ensuring optimal practice. Data to be collected includes the incidence of postpartum hemorrhage, usage of transfusion, and incidence of severe maternal morbidity.
