Miscarriage treatment-related morbidities and adverse events in hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based settings.

Roberts SCM, Beam N, Liu G, et al. J Patient Saf. 2020;16(4):e317-e323.

The increase in maternal morbidity and mortality is a priority patient safety issue. This study compared miscarriage treatment-related morbidity and adverse events among hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), and office-based settings. Although there were slightly more events in hospitals than ASCs or office-based settings, study findings do not support limiting miscarriage treatment to a particular setting.
