The first simulation began with a head to toe assessment of an antepartum mother. All of her vitals and labs came back normal. However, she did test positive for group B strep and had not been treated with penicillin yet. The nurse proceeded to administer at least two doses of the penicillin before delivery of the fetus. It was given every four hours during the labor process until delivery to protect the fetus from exposure to the group B strep. Everything went smoothly and the fetus was deemed protected throughout the labor process and during delivery. As for the second simulation, the initial assessment was the same, so a head to toe was done on the patient and it was determined that she was in active labor. Next, she entered the traditional

In order to have a normal birth, both the mother and the child need to prepare for birth. The mother needs to acquire knowledge regarding what to expect, information about the baby and its special care and attention. Both need to prepare themselves with time, so that at the end of pregnancy the mother just has to sit unstressfully for the baby to arrive. The child start preparing his departure from the mother’s womb by the end of the seventh month. The child starts protecting his body from external viruses and microbes by accumulating antibodies from the mother. Also he starts absorbing extra iron, because he knows that the mother’s milk lacks iron needed for the production of red blood cells. The child rotates his body, locating his head towards the birth canal. And the baby starts accumulating fat under his skin, preparing his body for life in the external
After I got the assignment, I met my nurse, introduced myself and took the report of the patient. I went in my patient room and introduced myself. I took patient vitals and documented it. With Professor Zentis I did physical assessment. Her fundus was firm and midline 2 fingers below the umbilicus. The patient had scent lochia rubra. Mrs. M has 6year old daughter and concerned that she is not sure the right positions to feed baby. She also had incision pain
Giving birth to a baby is the most amazing and miraculous experiences for parents and their loved ones. Every woman’s birth story is different and full of joy. Furthermore, the process from the moment a woman knows that she’s pregnant to being in the delivering room is very critical to both her and the newborn baby. Prenatal care is extremely important and it can impact greatly the quality of life of the baby. In this paper, the topic of giving birth will be discussed thoroughly by describing the stories of two mothers who gave birth in different decades and see how their prenatal cares are different from each other with correlation of the advancement of modern medicine between four decades.
According to Model 3, what is the stimulus and what is the response during childbirth?
Once the patients arrive to the unit, if the person belongs to either scheduled induction or C-Section, they are provided with a delivery room. If the patient does not belong to previously mentioned categories, and about to deliver, she is moved to a delivery room. One final category is, where patients come in because they feel that they are about to be in labor or the patients that experience various pregnancy related complications. These patients are monitored by the nurse, seen by the physician and put under observation. If any of those observation patients are about to go into labor, they will be moved to delivery room. The rest of the patients will be treated and discharged. A quick registration will be done for all patients as soon as they enter the unit. Additional documentation for triaged patients will be done after they are moved to triage. For patients in labor or C-Section, it will be done earliest of patient’s
Maternity Care and Delivery is a totally different situation that involves the health and well being of two patients, the mom and the baby. The procedures we code for would include the monitoring
Childbirth is one of the greatest privileges on the earth anyone could have and we, as women, should feel proud to be major contributors for it. Thus, a mother has to play a key role in aiding the healthcare workers to mitigate the health crisis associated with childbirth by performing her duties faithfully. One such associated health crisis is “Premature (preterm) birth” which occurs when the baby is born too early, before 37 weeks of gestational period (CDC, 2015). The rate of preterm birth ranges from 5% to 18% of babies born across 184 countries (WHO, 2015).
Throughout the weeks our team has recognized the effects and methods to managing the system development within our bookstore. It’s true that the bookstore has endured growing pains of ways to better secure their information as well as the sensitive information of their customers. Our team has analyzed better ways to conduct our business as well as the processing methods that will be improved to meet our needs. By examining our business process we had to identify the functions that were causing problems or raising cost, rising risks or basically wasting time.
The quality measure is to decrease the time between admission and the administration of intravenous antibiotics to infant whose mothers are GBS positive. Our goal is to decrease infection rates, length of stay and decrease the incidence of morbidity and mortality rates. This goal will be achieved by implementing a golden hour guidelines that will be initiated on admission once orders are placed for blood cultures and antibiotics. The guidelines can also be used for septic work ups on the unit.
For the next simulation, I am hoping that I have improved my critical thinking skills in nursing to effectively perform whatever role I will have. Moreover, since simulations are actual situations in real life clinical settings that are being played out by the students, I will research on applicable evidenced based nursing intervention and applied it during the simulation. Applying this type of intervention during the simulation will reinforce my knowledge of effective nursing intervention and will enable me to acquire a more meaningful experience that could be applied in actual clinical setting. I will also try my very best to find out what possible equipment will be used in carrying out nursing care for a given clinical
Two wide bore cannula, were inserted and a full set of bloods was taken including blood cultures. 15 litres O2 via a rebreather mask was applied. Intravenous fluids were commenced and rapidly infused. An ECG was done by the intern. She was checked and rechecked for any signs of bleeding and an internal examine was done by the consultant to check for any retained products. Intravenous antibiotics were also started and given. All drugs such as anaesthetic drugs or analgesia that Susan had been given that day were also checked to see if it had been an adverse reaction. Over the next 40 minutes she began to improve and was transferred to the labour ward for closer observation.
Although the authors do not come right out and say it, the study focuses on a single question they quote within the introduction which states, “If there is no good reason in theory or in practice for hurrying the second stage of labor, why has the habit been prevalent for so long and why does it still exist? (p. 311)”. This appears to be the driving question behind the entire study and is only apparent once the reader has read the discussion section of the article.
Following the introduction of the antenatal class focusing on VBAC, the next concern involves educating the women about the contraindications of VBAC. There are many reasons that VBAC should not
