The Health Information Quality Authority (HIQA) released inspection reports related to maternity services for Ireland’s 19 maternity units and hospitals. While inspectors found good practice in how maternity services detect and respond to obstetric emergencies, it also identified opportunities for improvement to ensure that maternity services remain safe and effective into the future. Previous inspection reports looked at medication safety, nutrition and hydration.
Reports are available (PDF format only) for individual hospitals, comparison of performance to other hospitals is not available.
