Delivery, Newborn Care Varies at California Hospitals
The type of delivery and newborn care provided at hospitals in California varies widely, according to new data from the California Hospital Assessment and Reporting Taskforce, or CHART. Among other things, the data show that women are more likely to have a cesarean section and are less likely to exclusively breast feed at low-performing hospitals than at high-performing hospitals. The California HealthCare Foundation publishes California Healthline.
