Interviews with mothers were compared with maternal prenatal histories and infant medical records in this study, revealing that a majority of patients had at least one information gap in which pertinent data was not recorded in the medical record. While such incomplete information has been documented previously, these errors of omission raise concern for adverse events and demonstrate the need for new strategies.
