Abstract

This document represents the Eighth Edition of what formerly was called Standards for Perinatal Centers. Since then, the name has changed to Guidelines for Perinatal Services, because use of the term “standards” connotes an inflexibility of application that is not intended. As noted in the preface to an earlier edition, so-called standards that apply to major urban areas are not always practical in rural America. Unfortunately, when a bad outcome occurs and litigation ensues, the differences between urban and rural are frequently ignored. These guidelines are not meant to hold Iowa hospitals and Iowa perinatal professionals to an impractical ideal.
