Hospitals in the District of Columbia and the states of Georgia and New Jersey will be invited to participate in an 18 month quality improvement learning collaborative designed to improve recognition of, readiness for, response to a postpartum hemorrhage.
In selecting states/regions for AWHONN’s PPH Project, AWHONN used the following criteria:
The District of Columbia ranks lower than all states in the U.S. with 34. 9 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births.
Georgia ranks 50th among all states in the U.S. with 20.5 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births
New Jersey ranks 35th among all states in the U.S. with 11.3 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births.
Note: The above data are from Deadly Delivery: The Maternal Health Care Crisis in the USA, 2010.
