2023 Together - P432 - The Early Warning Team: A Rapid Response Team for Maternal Hemorrhages - On Demand
Utilizing an obstetric rapid response team for maternal emergencies such as postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a best practice as recommended by the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative and other maternal care organizations. At University of Michigan Health Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital, employees had multiple ways, multiple people and differing thresholds on when to call for additional help in the PPH setting. The “Early Warning Team,” an obstetric rapid response team, was designed and established. Team implementation and a standard response process contributed to a 38% reduction in blood transfusion rates.
