FREE A midwifery-led newborn discharge pathway: an effective and innovative way of workforce management
Pahuja A, Mishra G, Mills L, D’costa W, Kaur D
Midwifery-led newborn discharge (MLND) is an effective way of reducing the length of hospital stay for well babies on IV antibiotics for suspected infection. A comprehensive protocol for MLND was designed and implemented on the postnatal ward following midwifery training in newborn discharge. Data were collected on the timings of chasing blood cultures and discharge from the time of starting antibiotics. The MLND pathway reduced the length of stay on the postnatal ward by 18.5 hours.
