Are mothers being put at risk by a sharp jump in the number of mistakes on NHS maternity wards?

Mistakes on maternity wards put mothers at risk
Article in the Telegraph


"The patient safety watchdog was notified of 70,108 "incidents" on neonatal units in 2007, double the 35,428 reported in 2005.

More mothers are being abused by ward staff, and there are more mistakes with medication and equipment, the figures obtained by the Liberal Democrats show.

The number of accidents suffered by pregnant women on wards also rose, from 1,584 to 1,060.

Overall, more than one in 10 mothers was a victim of a potentially serious incident while in hospital last year, either before or shortly after the birth of their child."
