Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Time: 2:00 PM EST
Opioid use disorder can present in all types of patients, including expectant mothers and their babies. Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) occurs when babies are born dependent on opioids and therefore experience health complications, such as respiratory problems or feeding issues.
Participants heard from Donalee Segal, MSN, RN, nurse director at association member Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, in Providence, R.I. Segal outlined her hospital’s approach to reducing length of stay and supporting mother-baby bonding for infants born with NAS.
