Maternal Mortality Review Panel
The following ACNM WA affiliate members were newly appointed to the Washington State Department of Health Maternal Mortality Review Panel.
This panel will review cases of women who died within a year of pregnancy or child birth. For each case, the committee will examine a variety of records, including information about hospitalizations, vital statistics, as well as medical records and autopsy reports.
The Secretary of Health will appoint members to the panel who will serve a term of two to five years. The panel will submit reports to the Secretary of Health and the legislature every two years regarding maternal deaths in the previous two years.
