Study of Intrapartum Care Received in a Selected Hospital in India
Keywords:Intrapartum Care, Post-natal, Stages of Labour
Background: Intrapartum care should fulfil the need of the new mother and not according to the health care provider’s thought. It is surprising that little research has been done on patient’s ability to understand the quality of intrapartum care in India. So, the investigator felt the need to assess the quality of intrapartum care received by the women.
Methodology: The proposed study was conducted in labour room and postnatal ward of Bankura Sammilani Medical College & Hospital, Bankura, West Bengal. The study population was including all consenting women admitted in the labour room in Bankura Sammilani Medical College & Hospital, Bankura. Sample size of this study was 100. Reliability of observational checklist and record analysis proforma were computed by inter rater method to establish the equivalence of the tool by administering the tool to the 20 subjects.
Results: The findings showed that more than half (53%) of women got good intrapartum care and very few women got (3%) very good intrapartum care.
Conclusion: The study concluded that there is a huge need for improvement in the area ofintrapartum care to reach the level of very good care.
