Research indicates that failures in communication between providers and the patients they care for account for up to 90 percent of preventable injuries during childbirth.

INTEGRIS Bass Baptist Health Center recently launched TeamBirth, a new initiative to enhance the birthing experience and improve outcomes for women giving birth and their babies. TeamBirth is a communication and teamwork process that can close gaps in communication.

A central component of the TeamBirth model is a shared whiteboard located in all labor and delivery rooms to outline care plans and progress for the patient and the baby that serves as an ongoing shared reference for the team. 

Special Care Nursery

If a baby requires a higher level of care, INTEGRIS Bass Baptist Health Center has a level II special care nursery available. The special care nursery is equipped with the most advanced technology and highly qualified nursing staff to deal with any complications a newborn might have.

Parents with infants in the level II special care nursery are offered overnight accommodations in one of the hospital’s courtesy rooms. This gives parents time to nurture and care for their infant while learning how to care for the special needs of their baby.

For those rare, extremely premature births, a lighted heliport provides immediate transport to various level III neonatal intensive care units in the state.

Special Extras

Before leaving the hospital, every baby born at INTEGRIS Bass Baptist Health Center is given a hearing screening using state-of-the-art auditory assessment equipment. The screening is done while the baby is asleep and measures the baby’s brain response to a series of clicking noises.

INTEGRIS Bass Baptist Health Center is a bronze-level safe sleep hospital and every newborn is provided with a safe sleep sack.
