GBS+ was another issue I was thinking about. If I do that it all has to be related to the baby. The nursing diagnosis and interventions are not the hard part. It is getting to that. I wrote down what I was thinking. Any feedback are welcome Questions that I have to answer include:
What are you alert for today?
What assessments are needed?
What are complications/risks?
What interventions were used?
Nursing diagnosis: PES
For GBS we would be alert for: Jaundice, apnea, respiratory depression, diarrhea, hypoglycemia, lethargy, seizures, abnormal labs (wbc,???),
