Maternal Fetal Triage Index

The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) has developed a five-level obstetric acuity tool for nurses to use when a woman presents for care at a birth unit. This standardized approach helps nurses prioritize the woman’s urgency for provider evaluation. AWHONN’s Maternal Fetal Triage Index (MFTI) is the first obstetric acuity tool designed by a professional society for use across the US.
