Review triage procedures used by NHS maternity wards
The Government should review how maternity wards triage patients, with a view to mandating a standard risk assessment based system for maternity and triage; assessing every patient within 15 minutes and prioritising care based on urgency, should be implemented.
Upon arrival at triage I was not seen for 40 minutes. I was not assessed for a further 1 hour and 5 minutes, then my CTG was not reviewed for an hour. I believe a lack of risk assessment and all of these delays were the reason for my son's death. If the hospital had used standard risk assessment based system my baby's death could have been prevented. Similar cases could be prevented if risk assessments are done properly and sooner.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
