Description:
Up to twenty percent of all newborns are exposed prenatally to alcohol, illicit drugs, and prescription opioids. Identifying the mother and her newborn are the first steps required for individualized treatment for the specific drugs. Neonates are extremely sensitive to the environment which must be altered by creative nursing interventions. Nurses can potentially have greatest impact, since women are most likely to be receptive to treatment while pregnant or immediately postpartum.
