Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The challenge of hospital risk management in perinatal care is examined from the perspective of the application of theory to everyday practice. Certain zones of risk exist in each stage of the hospitalization period, and in each aspect of the physician/patient and health care team relationships. Understanding of and incorporation of risk management into habits of practice will serve to reduce the risk of real or perceived injuries.
