Implementing delivery room checklists and communication standards in a multi-neonatal ICU quality improvement collaborative.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
Checklists and debriefing improve patient safety across multiple care settings. In this quality improvement initiative, participating hospitals reported high levels of adherence and satisfaction to a protocol for neonatal resuscitation that included a checklist, briefings, and debriefings. The authors advocate for these safety processes to be included in neonatal resuscitation guidelines.
