- Midwife to mother who was getting discouraged during pushing that her baby was not yet born.
Mother: “No, my doctor said they wants to see me every two weeks.”
Midwife: “Fine, we can do that, but you won’t get another ultrasound for a month.”
- Certified Nurse Midwife during a prenatal appointment at the maternal fetal medicine practice with a high risk mother. The CNM assumed the mother was “fishing” for another ultrasound.
- Child Health Nurse notes from developmental assessment of 18 month old child. The child had ignored the nurse when she called him the wrong name on 3 occasions during the visit, using a different name each time, despite being corrected by the mother. (Answered mother’s call with correct name several times during the assessment.)
- OB to third time mother who said the Doppler wouldn’t pick up the baby’s heart due to placental placement and suggested another area where she knew the baby was lying. (Ultrasound notes on file confirmed mother’s information regarding placental position and later palpation proved baby’s position to be accurate.)
