This Postnatal Risk Assessment Matrix (PRAM) resource was developed by Dr Cindy Shawley, Quality Improvement Lead for Maternity at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The pack includes a number of monitoring and assessment tools to help keep mums and babies safe.
The following two sections have been selected for the finals of the Nursing Times Awards, under the Patient Safety category:
- The First Hour of Care: Keeping mums and babies together (a proforma and pathway to promote normal adaptation to life)
- Holding your baby safely poster (as referenced in the recent National Learning Report, Neonatal collapse alongside skin-to-skin contact)
Please open the attached documents to view the full PRAM resource pack as well as the two award-nominated sections that can be downloaded independently.
Many thanks to Dr Shawley for giving permission to share these important patient safety resources on the hub.
