Prospectus supported the Rotunda Hospital in undertaking an in depth review of their post natal services. The objectives of the review were to research the changing environment on how postnatal care is delivered and explore opportunities for enhancing postnatal care. This was done by: reviewing current practices on postnatal wards, reviewing Irish and International good practice in postnatal care and benchmarking current practices against good practice, identifying areas of improvement, and devising a plan for implementing change and variance records.
