New qualitative analysis from the Delivery Decisions Initiative at Ariadne Labs

The Delivery Decisions Initiative team at Ariadne Labs published a new paper in the journal Birth. Common challenges managing bed and staff availability on labor and delivery units in the United States: A qualitative analysis, analyzes interviews with nurse and physician managers from labor and delivery units, and identifies common challenges related to patient flow and nurse staffing. They describe management practices that are more/less proactive and systematic, and observe that “…units with both proactive and systematic practices appeared best positioned to effectively manage limited beds and staffing.”
