VBAC & Cesarean Rates of California Hospitals, 2006

I’ve copy and pasted the entire spreadsheet below.  Be sure to read, “Why if your hospital ‘allows’ VBAC isn’t enough.”

If you look at the PDF (link provided below), you will see that the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development has cesarean section and primary cesarean section listed as “POSSIBLE OVER UTILIZATION” and VBAC listed as “POSSIBLE UNDER UTILIZATION.”  Interesting.  They further address the high cesarean and low VBAC rates in this press release, dated January 17, 2008, which states:

  • The hospital level data will help consumers and payers make more informed healthcare choices by providing information on the experience hospitals have in performing specific procedures and on the rates of use for various procedures.
  • “One alarming trend we see in the 2006 data is the increased use of Caesarean Sections,” said OSHPD Director Dr. David Carlisle. “We are seeing rates that exceed 50% at some hospitals, which is very concerning because the operation is not always necessary, has known complications, and ultimately drives up healthcare costs.”
  • The 2006 data on maternal care suggests that some healthcare providers are more likely to perform cesarean section deliveries than others, with rates varying between 50% and 14% depending on the hospital.
  • Data has shown that many cesarean deliveries are inappropriate and lead to significant complications for the mother.
  • While there are no standards for cesarean rates, this data will help consumers compare birth delivery data to make more informed choices about their health. This is particularly true for maternal care in which mothers and their families often have the opportunity to make plans about the type of care they wish to receive.
  • OSHPD reports 5 utilization indicators for procedures where evidence shows there is under use or overuse, along with large variation in rates across hospitals. Each of the four maternal indicators is risk- adjusted for age, and the laparoscopic cholecystectomy indicator is adjusted for both age and sex. The indicators include:
    • Cesarean Delivery Rate (2): Number of Cesarean Section Deliveries per 100 Deliveries (excludes abnormal presentation, preterm, fetal death, multiple gestation, and breech procedures). Cesarean delivery may be overused in some facilities, so lower rates may represent better care.
    • Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) Rate: Number of vaginal births per 100 women with a previous Cesarean delivery. VBAC may be underused in some facilities, so higher rates may represent better care, though this rate includes some women who were probably not good candidates for vaginal birth.

Hospitals with VBAC Bans?

All these hospitals had 5 or fewer VBACs in 2006.  I wonder if it is because they have banned them.  There are 259 hospitals that reported births and the 101 listed below represents 39% of them.  I guess they should read this and this.
