Description

She was progressing along as planned, then something unexpected happened. The outcome devastated the family forever. And it shattered me too.

Working with new families can be so amazing. The excitement is palpable. Have you ever worked in a facility where the overhead speaker played a lullaby whenever a baby was born? Everyone stops, listens, and imagines a happy family welcoming their newborn.

But we know that situations around pregnancies and birth are not always joyous. They can be sad and scary for the nurse, certified nurse midwife, APRNs and family. The trauma around IVF, shoulder dystocia, facilitating informed decisions, communication barriers, and other tangles in obstetrical nursing are growing increasingly complex.

Families are anticipating the best outcomes and when that doesn’t happen, they could turn to you for explanations or even worse, blame.   When the worst situations unravel, how does a bad outcome change your practice?

In this session, Rosale will walk you through a simple plan to uncover the secrets to keeping your license and profession safe from scrutiny and litigation.
