Don’t blame a mother for her own death!

April 15, 2019

Military hospitals should not blame mothers for their own injuries and death.

From another USA TODAY article in the series investigating childbirth complications in America: “For years, hospitals have blamed rising maternal deaths and injuries on problems beyond their control. Almost universally they’ve pointed to poverty and pre-existing medical conditions as the driving factors in making America the most dangerous place in the developed world to give birth.”

“That narrative shifts the focus away from examining how doctors and nurses perform in maternity units.” But the USA TODAY investigation shows that several deaths and close calls cannot be explained by demographics alone. “The data, medical records and lawsuits suggest a complicated mix of misdiagnoses, delayed care and a failure to follow safety measures.”
