I found items and others that are similar in a Google search using these
search terms:

emergency department dedicated to obstetrics.  
1. The Women's Hospital is proud to introduce the first emergency department
in the state of Indiana dedicated solely to obstetric and gynecologic care.

2. OB Emergency Department (OBED) 

If in-depth information about developing an OBED isn't located from this
type of search strategy or by refining it in some way, one approach is to
contact those you identify and inquire about documentation or ask whether
they can share their experience.  They may be able to provide details or
suggest other resources.

Subject: Ref help: looking for help with search terms for obstetrical
emergency department

Good morning all.

I am having a little trouble phrasing this search.  My patron requested the

obstetrics in the emergency department 

I took this to mean obstetric emergencies that presented in the ED.  But I
was mistaken.  Patron replied to my original emailed results with this

"I was trying to find if there was any information about developing a true
Obstetrical Emergency Department?  It is a relatively new ideas and I
thought that perhaps there may be something in the literature."

Tried phrases in quotes  "obstetrical emergency department" and "obstetric
emergency department" with no useful results.  Any ideas??

I am off to try Ebsco. Already checked PubMed, ProQuest and Google Scholar.

The day started out so well and now there's this...
