Overview

ASSESSMENT OF THE NEW MOTHER & BABY filmed in the Mother/Baby Unit of Intermountain Utah Valley Regional Medical using mothers during their actual postpartum experience and newborns in the Nursery and Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NBICU), vividly and accurately demonstrates the nurses' role in the care of the new mother and baby. The program is presented in three complementing components: POSTPARTUM ASSESSMENTS AND INTERVENTIONS, NEONATAL ASSESSMENT, AND GESTATIONAL AGE EVALUATION. POSTPARTUM ASSESSMENTS AND INTERVENTIONS covers the nurse's role in the comprehensive care needed for mothers who experience a vaginal or Cesarean birth. NEONATAL ASSESSMENT illustrates the nurse's responsibility in Apgar scoring and performing both an initial and brief assessment soon after birth followed by a comprehensive physical examination. A demonstration of health screening for hemoglobin level, hypoglycemia, mandatory metabolic and endocrine problems is covered as well as the administration of Vit. K and eye medication. GESTATIONAL AGE EVALUATION demonstrates the nurse examining term, pre-term and post-term infants to determine their gestational age.
