MQAC Investigation Closed: Residents Did Not Deviate from Standard of Care in Treating Postpartum Hemorrhage

In April 2016, Justin Steiner represented two residents at local academic medical center in an investigation by the Medical Quality Assurance Commission. The patient had experienced postpartum hemorrhage and complained to MQAC that the residents, along with others, were negligent by taking too long to recognize and treat the hemorrhage. MQAC closed the investigation, finding there was no deviation from the standard of care by the residents.
