ED Staff Education Meeting 6/9/2021
This course was designed to help address gaps in knowledge related to neonatal care. The content in this meeting is also designed to address the gap in competence of using incubators. In addition, the ED staff will soon start using a new point-of-care test called hemocue. The content will address the gaps in knowledge related to this new test.
After attending this event, the learner will be able to:
- identify which infants (<60 days) meet inclusion criteria for rule-out-sepsis evaluations in the Emergency Department.
- demonstrate proper use of the incubators
- define the appropriate nursing interventions for neonates with mild, moderate, and severe hypothermia.
- identify the indication for using the new point-of-care test hemocue for rapid hemoglobin levels.
