    The Newborn Bath

    We wait 6 hrs. We do baths anytime of the day. Most parents are fine with bathing the baby if the are already awake.

    Frenectomy

    Does your newborn nursery do many frenectomies? It seems many of our new moms are now coming in and asking for this to help with breastfeeding. If you do this in your hospital, who does this, the ped, ent, or does the baby come back as an outpatient? Does your lactation department play any part in this? Thank you for any insight.

    Maternal mandatory drug screening

    Does any have any hospital protocols/policies they would be willing to share with me?
  7. Recently administration has told us we have to use bedside medication scanning on ALL of our newborn meds. Newborn admission meds have been problematic (vit k & erythromycin) We have a huge disconnect between pharmacy, IT and nursing staff and are running into various issues to make this successful. How are your facilities doing this with success? By the time pharmacy verifies the meds and they are loaded on the EMAR, our allotted time frame to administer these meds has lapsed. What is your process that works well?
