Touro Infirmary in New Orleans put in place a hard stop policy for early elective deliveries, which made up 7% of deliveries two years ago. "The schedulers were very important with the start of the hard stop policy because they were the front lines to talk to the mothers," Chief Nursing Officer Penny Menge said. The policy prevented 68 early elective deliveries. See another Health Research & Educational Trust Hospital Engagement Network video report on preventing early elective delivery.
