I am currently working at a hospital that appears to have no unit specific L&D policy and procedures in place. We have a new manager and I have asked her where they are...she cannot find any! I am not new to L&D but am new to this hospital. I have never worked anywhere where there were not unit specific policy and procedures. Is this a violation of JCAHO or CMS? I am just trying to see what weight I have in getting things started. Thanks for any info you may have!
