Labor and delivery (L&D) is a high-risk care environment where one error can lead to further breakdowns. This commentary suggests that L&D units provide ideal opportunities to study multifaceted approaches to avoiding errors. The authors outline various methods to improve safety in this setting, including strategies focused on standardized protocols, communication, teamwork, and simulation training.
