Abstract

Greenwich Hospital has a high incidence of maternity patients diagnosed with preeclampsia, even after delivery. Postpartum preeclampsia is a condition concerning high blood pressure, which can lead to multi-system organ involvement (Redman et al., 2019, p. 998). Although it is a condition most identified during pregnancy, it can still appear within six weeks of giving birth. On the postpartum unit at Greenwich Hospital, there are discrepancies among the healthcare team on when to initiate treatment for preeclampsia, which can lead to impaired patient safety and confusion among the staff.
