All parents should be offered the opportunity to engage with the review of their baby’s death

When a baby dies in hospital, a perinatal mortality review (PNMR) takes place. Currently, parents are largely unaware these reviews even take place and in most cases, bereaved parents are not given the opportunity to be involved and share their perspective of their care.

A new study tested the hypothesis at two UK hospitals that involving parents would have the potential to answer their questions and therefore support them in grieving, drive patient safety improvements, and promote an open culture within healthcare.
