Abstract:

A study about compliance of midwives towards maternity protocols conducted in 2012 by Kgabo Community Health Centre (CHC) personnel showed low levels of compliance and poor record keeping of maternity case records as a contributory cause to late diagnosis and treatment of complications.

A multi-disciplinary team was compiled and base line data was collected from retrospective audits of the study sites’ maternity case records. Interventions included in-service training of midwives and staff nurses at the Kgabo CHC and its feeder clinics. We developed tools to measure the progress of the project through monthly audits. The results thereof were compared against quarterly supervisors’ and District Clinical Specialist team’s reports.

Of the 30 maternity case records audited initially, 18 were from feeder clinics and 12 were from Kgabo CHC. The results showed respectively 27% and 39% completeness. Follow up audit revealed a great deal of improvement for both sites. Continuous peer support and on the job training have proved to be very effective and rewarding in improving record keeping at Kgabo CHC and this showed reduction in maternal and child complications.

During the project, the mentee learned communication skills, assertiveness, project management and quality improvement process in an institution.
