Two recent studies have shown that 30% to 90% of women with PPH received care that is less than optimal, while a third study has shown that hospitals with a fetal maternal specialist experienced a lower rate of PPH. Research has also shown that a lack of training and education among health care providers could play a significant role in the development of severe hemorrhage. The authors of this paper developed a series of quality indicators to evaluate whether providers are adhering to the optimal guidelines when caring for patients with PPH.
