Newborns Die After Being Sent Home with Drug-Dependent Mothers

Recently Reuters and NBC did an extensive three part report on prenatally exposed newborns being sent home with drug addicted mothers and the risk of death in those newborns. The complete report with attached videos and charts can be found at http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/baby-opioids/ but I have transposed the report to a word document and separated the three parts for easier reading. I have also attached a Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) scoring sheet and NAS Guidelines.

Professionals should be reminded that the symptoms of NAS does not immediately show at birth. The onset of withdrawal depends on the half-life of the drug, duration of the addiction, and time of last maternal dose prior to delivery. On average, observation of symptoms do not appear for 3 days which is after the time the newborn has been discharged from the hospital with the mother. Therefore, lack of physical disability or observable signs of NAS in the hospital does not automatically mean the child has no problems and is at a reduced risk. In addition, the mother may not recognize or understand NAS symptoms once the baby is home or if she does, she may not admit it. Feel free to share with others who may be interested.
