University of Kansas Hospital first in nation to use course for childbirth emergencies
The University of Kansas Hospital has implemented a mandatory training program—the first of its kind in the nation—to train staff on how to handle delivery emergencies. The exercises are designed to save newborns and their mothers during potentially catastrophic emergencies. About 100 members of the hospital's staff have been going through two days of classroom and hands-on training. They have been learning how to deal as a team with a variety of obstetrical emergencies that are each relatively rare, but account for many of the deaths and serious injuries of childbirth.
