Infection control, pain assessment/reassessment, following policy on Pit titration and postpartum recovery assessment/VS frequency, EMTALA and MSE completion, as well as making sure all nurses doing an MSE have a documented competency.

Starting this summer, they will also be focusing very closely on PPH prevention and management of hypertensive emergencies, per the new PCs.

Medical Screening Exam. It's an EMTALA requirement that every patient in triage get one before discharge home. It's a common finding that patients are not getting one by a qualified healthcare provider based on CMS rules and the hospital's bylaws.
