Maternity Safety Statements

Maternity Safety Statements (MSS) are published monthly for each of the country’s 19 maternity hospitals and units since their introduction by the HSE in 2015. Each Hospital Group and Maternity Hospital publishes an updated statement each month.

Further information as well as the definition of each metric is available on the HSE website.

These summary statistics reflect the most recent monthly activity at The National Maternity Hospital. We hope that these data provide reassurance regarding the quality and safety of services at our hospital. These figures are not formatted in a way to support comparison with other hospitals or aggregation with other data. Given the complexity of care at our hospital, which is a national tertiary referral centre, it is not appropriate to compare any of these statistics with other hospitals that have different patient numbers or types of clinical workload.
