The absence of conditions or procedures reflecting morbidity that happened during birth and nursery care to an otherwise normal infant.

 

Measure Denominator

The denominator is composed of singleton, term (>=37 weeks), inborn, livebirths in their birth admission. The denominator further has eliminated fetal conditions likely to be present before labor. Maternal and obstetrical conditions (e.g., hypertension, prior cesarean, malpresentation) are not excluded unless evidence of fetal effect prior to labor (e.g., IUGR/SGA).
