Missed nursing care during labor and birth and exclusive breast milk feeding during hospitalization for childbirth.
The purpose of this study was to determine associations between missed nursing care and nurse staffing during labor and birth, and exclusive breast milk feeding at hospital discharge. Exclusive breast milk feeding is a national quality indicator of inpatient maternity care. Nurses have substantial responsibility for direct support of infant feeding during the childbirth hospitalization. The investigators indicate that the results support exclusive breast milk feeding as a nurse-sensitive quality indicator.
