Unnecessary C-sections still commonplace in hospitals

Arizona parents-to-be may be interested in learning that approximately 1.3 million children are delivered via cesarean sections every single year. This figure equates to about a third of all children born each year. Yet, according to a study released in January 2017, the vast majority of women wish to deliver their children vaginally.

Arizona patients have limited access to hospital error data

Prospective patients have few options for investigating the quality of care provided at Arizona hospitals. Rates of medical errors and infections along with information about serious medical mistakes tend to be kept secret. The state has no laws requiring hospitals to report mistakes, and national databases tend to present old and incomplete data.

C-section complications and changing gloves

Arizona expectant women might be less likely to suffer complications from a Cesarean section if medical personnel change gloves before closing the abdominal wall. A study that was presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists found that 6 percent of patients suffered a composite wound complication when clinicians changed gloves versus 13 percent when gloves were not changed.
