HOSPITAL WHOLE MOM STANDARDS
The survey was drafted as a means for individual hospitals to survey themselves, or for a community to survey all of it's birth hospitals.
In 2015 Hospitals can begin working toward becoming a 'center of excellence' by meeting the recommendations laid out in the new 2020 Mom "Whole Mom" Hospital survey. Hospitals may compete the attestation associated with the survey by June 30 or November 30 of each year to be recognized as a "Whole Mom" hospital.
Community Survey of Birth Hospitals
A community may also be surveyed at once, in order for communities to bring about significant change more quickly. All hospitals in a community would be asked to complete the survey, be provided with the blinded results to learn how they compare to the others and be offered 6 months to one year of technical assistance to advance their programs. The community would be resurveyed and the results published by the local agency commissioning the survey.
To commission a community survey, please contact: Lisa@2020mom.org to share number of birth hospitals. She will provide a quote for the survey.
