Abstract

An audit of birth records of two public and one private hospital was undertaken, over a 6-month period, to determine compliance with the local policy that all women are tested for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). Overall 92.1% of women were tested for GDM. When those women who delivered their babies early or who had no prenatal care were excluded, then there was 95.3% compliance with the advice for universal testing.
