Abstract

National task forces have been charged to reduce maternal mortality rates. To do so, they must identify the role of the nurse in accomplishing this goal, but the specific assessments and interventions for which only nurses are responsible have yet to be defined. Clinical judgment, which is the ability to notice, interpret, and respond to potential problems, is a core nurse function. Nurse clinical judgment can be evaluated during chart review with new available tools.
