CME 22/01/15 – Obstetric Resources at SCGH ED

Thanks to Deanne, Suzanne and others noted below, here is a copy of all the information now contained on the Obstetrics Orientation Resources page found under the ED Orientation menu:

Birth Algorithm

SCGH ED has all the Obstetric Equipment set up in ready-to-grab packs in our Pink Boxes (click to reveal contents list):

These live in the Clean Utility Room on the bottom shelf (to the right as you walk in). The Delivery Bundle box contains a helpful Pink Manual with all the O&G information you might need whilst working on the floor. These resources were set up by Suzanne Rosenberg, Clinical Nurse & Registered Midwife. Suzanne, and friends, talk through the SCGH ED obstetric resources in the following four password protected videos.
