The information collected during labor, delivery and the immediate postpartum period is very important to follow-up care for both mother and infant, whether the follow-up care is provided in an inpatient or outpatient facility. A physician's recommendation for a follow-up hematocrit test or evaluation of the incision in the office may be noted in the Labor and Delivery Summary or in the Maternal Discharge Summary. These documents must be available in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Pertinent maternal information includes, but is not limited to, delivery type; labor type; anesthesia type; labor, delivery and postpartum complications; and specific maternal information such as medications, laboratory test results, allergies and plans for contraception. Pertinent neonatal information includes, but is not limited to, delivery method, gender, birth time, birth weight, gestational age at delivery, APGAR scores, and medications received in the delivery room including immunizations.
