I'm in Ob right now. I was assigned a patient who was post op day 2 c-section with a hx of Bipolar Manic Disorder. Newborn was born at 37 weeks 5lbs 8oz. Here is my silly question, would I be able to use a nursing diagnosis as:
Risk for SIDS r/t parental mental illness
Ugh!! does that make sense or should scratch that?
