Quality improvement assessment of compliance to performing and documenting delayed cord clamping in premature newborns. Between July –December 2014, 150 premature neonates (<37 weeks’ gestational age) admitted to the University of Washington neonatal intensive care unit were eligible for delayed cord clamping (DCC), which was implemented in July, 2014. A). For each month following DCC implementation, documentation (percent) was assessed regarding whether or not the duration of DCC was documented in the electronic medical record. Of the 150 neonates admitted to the NICU, 70.7% (106/150) had documentation on duration of cord clamping (delayed or immediate), with a decrease in documentation noted the last 2 months assessed. B.) Over the first 6 months following implementation, only 40.7% (61/150) of premature neonates admitted to the NICU had DCC (>30 seconds) documented. The figure depicts the neonates with documented DCC for each month (bottom line of the rectangular black bar) and the possible range of neonates who may have received DCC if all the undocumented neonates actually had DCC performed (top line of the rectangular black bar).
