July 2020 New Joint Commission Maternal Safety Standards: How Prepared Are You?

About This Webinar

The Joint Commission has identified that the highest impact for improving maternal morbidity and mortality is in the prevention, early recognition, and timely treatment of both maternal hemorrhage and severe hypertensive/preeclampsia.

Effective July 2020, hospitals that are Joint Commission accredited will be held accountable to demonstrate adherence to new requirements focused on improving the quality and safe care provided to women during all stages of pregnancy and postpartum.
