Hospital Detention of Mothers and Their Infants at a Large Provincial Hospital: A Mixed-Methods Descriptive Case Study, Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo
The practice of detaining people who are unable to pay for health care services they have received is widespread in many parts of the world. We aimed to determine the proportion of women and their infants detained for inability to pay for services received at a provincial hospital in the Democratic Republic of the Congo during a 6-week period in 2016. A secondary objective was to determine clinical and administrative staff attitudes and practices about payment for services and detention.
