Reducing maternal harm is an ongoing safety goal. Survey results from 1,165 nurses working on maternity units from four states found that nurses in the majority of hospitals felt that their units do not provide excellent quality care and have a less than optimal safety climate. Nurses commonly reported communication challenges, fears related to challenging authority, and that their mistakes are held against them.
