In our analysis of Constellation® malpractice claims, obstetrical (OB) claims are third in total cost despite representing only 4% of all claims. The top allegation involved in OB harm events is the delay in recognition and treatment of fetal distress. Contributing to OB harm and claims are problems with culture, patient assessment, fetal monitoring skills and communication breakdowns.

This webinar outlines how to help your OB care team learn, improve and respond to OB harm events.
