Today we discuss a study that describes associations between race/ethnicity, hospital of birth and ‘unexpected newborn complications’ in low-risk term neonates in New York City.
Kristine Schmitz (1) and Lawrence Charles Kleinman (2) are the authors of a commentary published by EBN on that study. They tell Evidence-Based Nursing Associate Editor, Kerry Gaskin, how the quality of care in the hospital of delivery has a direct relation with more unexpected neonatal complications in black and hispanic infants.
