Austin N ; Goldhaber-Fiebert S ; Daniels K; et al. Building comprehensive strategies for obstetric safety: simulation drills and communication. Anesth Analg. 2016; 123: 1181-1190
Most safety improvement interventions in obstetrics do not reflect insights from anesthesia providers. This commentary discusses how one hospital drew from the patient safety expertise of anesthesiologists and used simulation and communication interventions in its labor and delivery unit.
