Induction Management Bundle Clarification
Failed Induction
Definition: Induced, but does not enter active labor (>6cms)
• Uterine contractions
• Failure to achieve contractions every 3 min with cervical change after 24 hrs
of pitocin plus ruptured membranes (if no contraindications), or
• Contractions every 3 min x 24 hrs without entering active phase for those
with initial Bishop score less than 8 or if cervical ripening used
• Inadequate response to a needed, clinically appropriate, second cervical
ripening agent
• Membranes have been ruptured with inadequate progress (assuming feasible
and no contraindications to AROM)
• Pitocin has been given per hospital protocol if inadequate frequency +/or
intensity of contractions occur after cervical ripening alone
• If ROM, Pitocin given x 12 hrs without regular contractions resulting in cervical
Discuss options for further management:
Consider RBA of all options (D/C home w/plan for f/u
versus C-Section, depending on the clinical situation)

Early Establishment of EDD
ACOG Criteria
Estimated Date of Delivery - use EDD, not EDC and report as wks + days,
not in decimals – eg 38 5/7 wks (ReVitalize, 12/2012)
The best obstetrical Estimated Date of Delivery (EDD) is determined by:
 1) Last menstrual period (LMP) if confirmed by early ultrasound or no
ultrasound performed *, or
 2) Early ultrasound if no known LMP or the ultrasound is not consistent
with LMP, or
 3) Known date of conception (eg. ART, IUI, IVF) dating
* Ultrasound-established dates should take preference over menstrual dates
when discrepancy is >7 days in 1st tri and >10 days in the 2nd tri.
US considered to confirm menstrual dates if GA agreement within
1 week by 1st trimester CRL or within 10 days by averaging multiple
2nd trimester fetal biometric measurements (up to 20 wks gestation)
ACOG Practice Bulletin 101
Laying the Foundation
Early Establishment of EDD
8% Rule
 Comparison of Ultrasound with LMP clinical dating for best EDD
 Most accurate method at any gestational age
 Method (may be used by Radiology, MFM): Convert LMP & US
EGA’s from wks to days, multiply x .08 for # days diff & use US if
greater, use LMP if less than calculated variance.
Eg: LMP ga is 9wks (63days x .08 = +/-5 days) but US ga is 10wks (or
7days greater) – thus the US is most accurate EDD for this pg (by
ACOG would stay with LMP dating since +/- 1 wk)

Induction Consent
• Combination Patient Education and Consent Form explains:
Why induction is being done (Medical indication or “Elective”)
Potential Risks & Benefits & Alternatives
Possible options for cervical ripening, if needed
Oxytocin use
• Providers appreciate the balance of informing women of the
increased risk of C/section, longer labor, poor fetal transition,
when induction is not medically necessary – but information is
presented in a manner to not scare them if delivery is
medically indicated.
• Discuss & Sign at time of Scheduling the Induction! Fax to L&D
• Some versions include Bishop Score, thus may aid schedulers
• Do not take the place of hospital consents for care
Medicaid Quality Incentive
Safe Deliveries: Induction Appropriateness and
Elective Deliveries Prior to 39 Weeks
(Hospitals with obstetrical programs only)
Improvement measure: percent of patients undergoing a
medical or non medical labor induction with documentation
of consent, Bishop Score, and indication
Sustaining measure: percent of patients with Elective
Deliveries 37 to less than 39 weeks gestational age
Induction Appropriateness
• Numerator:
Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical induction with
documentations of consent, Bishop’s score and indication
• Denominator:
Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical induction
Documentation sources for Bishop score and induction can be taken from the consent,
medical record, or checklist available if audited by the Healthcare Authority. Hospitals
are encouraged to make a part of the medical record if possible.
Induction Appropriateness (Cont:)
For hospitals that use on each of their induction patients a standard hospital
consent that includes all elements, no audit is needed.
For written consent the following is required under RCW 7.70.060(1):
Identification of patient
Name of hospital in which treatment is to be performed
Name of attending physician
Nature, anticipated results, alternatives to and risk of proposed treatment, including
When the proposed treatment will be given
Date and time of signing the consent
Signature of patient or patient’s representative
If hospital does not use a standard consent for all induction patients, the hospital will
conduct an audit of a minimum of thirty records randomly selected to review if all elements
of consent are present. Audit must be available for the Health Care Authority to review.
Induction Appropriateness (Cont:)
Fields to be reported:
• Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical
induction with documentation of consent, Bishop score
and induction indication. (numerator)
• Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical
induction. (denominator)
Data collection period:
• September 1, 2013 - December 31, 2013
• Reporting deadline: 45 days following the end of the
