Understanding the heterogeneity of labor and delivery units: using design thinking methodology to assess environmental factors that contribute to safety in childbirth.
Sherman JP, Hedli LC, Kristensen-Cabrera AI, et al; Safety Learning Laboratory for Neonatal and Maternal Care. Am J Perinatol. 2019 Apr 23; [Epub ahead of print].
This direct observation study examined maternal and neonatal care at 10 labor and delivery units. Investigators uncovered three environmental needs that impact safety: rapid access to blood products, space for neonatal resuscitation, and organization and availability of equipment and supplies. They conclude that applying design thinking to physical space could improve maternal and neonatal safety.
