Short and long- patient will be free from infection. 1. a) “monitor temperature, pulse, and WBC count, as indicated.”b) “Perform vaginal examination only when absolutely necessary, using aseptic technique.”2. a) “Administer antibiotics, as indicated.”b) “Provide aseptic conditions for delivery.”(Paul Martin, Stages of Labor, Nursing Labs 2019)1. a) “Increased temperature or pulsegreater than 100 bpm may indicate infection. Normal protective leukocytosis with WBC count as high as25,000/mm3 must bedifferentiated from elevated WBC count caused by infection.”b) “Repeated vaginal examination increases the risk of endometrial infections.”2. a) “Use only occasionally; prophylactic antibiotics are controversial and must be used with caution because the may stimulate overgrowth of resistant organisms.”b) “Helps prevent postpartum infection and endometritis.”(Paul Martin, Stages of Labor, Nursing Labs 2019)Penicillin was provided to the patient for her GBS infection. She responded well to the antibiotic. No further infection has been noted.
Maternity Case 2: Brenda Patton Documentation Assignments1. Document your initial assessment data of Ms. Patton, including uterine activity (frequency and duration), fetal heart rate (FHR) activity (baseline FHR, long-term variability, accelerations, and decelerations), vaginal discharge, and maternal vital signs.Ms. Brenda’s vital signs were normal- breathing at 20 breaths per minute, radial pulse is strong at 90 per minute, BP 116/70, SpO2 98%, temp 37C, and FHR at 134. Breath sounds were clear and equal bilaterally and heart was regular without murmurs. I examined the patient’s abdomen and pelvis and the Leopold maneuvers were performed- the fetus is in longitudinal lie, in vertex presentation. The patient’s deep tendon reflexes were normal with a grade to +2. The fetal heart rate was auscultated and it was at 140 beats per minute. I palpated the uterus for contractions and the uterus tone was soft between contractions. Regular contractions were moderate intensify. Contractions were approximately 4 minutes apart and lasting 50 seconds.2. Document the medication(s) that you administered.I started a piggyback infusion of 5,000,000 IU of penicillin for the patients positive GBS and a piggyback infusion of 12.5 mg of promethazine. 3. Document Ms. Patton’s pain during labor (severity during contractions, location, quality, interventions taken, and response to interventions) and the measures that were taken to promote her desire for a natural birth.Location: abdominal pressure and pain due to contractions. She rated her pain level at a 2/10 and described her pain as radiating to her back. She responded well to all interventions (med administration, exams and assessments.) We only performed non-pharmacological interventions for pain while patient was in labor.
