Safety

We built in safety and training to ensure you and your baby are as healthy as possible. 

We built the hospital with the safety of you and your baby in mind. Many of these features are hidden from sight - but easily accessed by our staff. Here are a few of the things you might not have thought of - but we did:

ACLS-OB certification

Every nurse on staff is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. ACLS-certified nurses are specially-trained to provide the clinical interventions necessary for urgent treatment of cardiac arrest and other medical emergencies.All Women's Hospital nurses in Labor & Delivery, Mother/Baby and High-Risk OB units are also ACLS-OB certified with additional specialty training in the emergency treatment of pregnant or newly delivered women.

Same-sided room design

Every mother/baby room is designed with equipment and features in the same place. This design allows staff to quickly access equipment in the same location in every room.

In-room medical equipment

Wall cabinets store the labor and delivery procedure and treatment cart, medical supplies, linens and laundry. The equipment, while out of sight, is within easy reach of the staff when needed. High-risk rooms also feature additional equipment concealed behind wall art.

Art with a purpose

Wall art quickly releases to allow access to oxygen lines and other hidden medical equipment. This means emergency medical supplies are right at hand - but out of the sight of you and your visitors.

Emergency elevator call buttons

Each of the Labor / Delivery rooms have a priority elevator call button. The spacious rooms have been designed to accommodate the members of any code team that might need to respond in the event of an emergency. If the baby must be quickly transferred to another location for a higher level of care, staff can push this in-room button to call and hold an elevator.
