Out-of-Hospital (OOH)/Community Births was selected as a UWNQC focus because of the growing percentage of planned out-of-hospital births in Utah. Utah ranks in the top five states nationally for planned out of hospital births at 3.2% in 2015. The goals of the committee are to analyze the current state of OOH births in Utah, to identify maternal and neonatal safety issues related to OOH births and create statewide actions items addressing the recognized safety issues.
