ABSTRACT
The obstetrics unit at a Boston hospital has been recognized for a dramatic reduction in major adverse events. Much of the improvement can be attributed to the recent adoption of crew resource management to improve staff communication and performance. • Malpractice liability exposure also was reduced. • The hospital committed to significant staff retraining. • The effort was prompted by the unnecessary stillbirth of a baby.
