Rip and roar so you can soar

A client is rh-negative and has given birth to her newborn. what should the nurse do next?

A nurse is caring for a client who has given birth to her newborn. The nurse notices that the mother-baby are both rh negative and the baby’s cord blood type was not identified at delivery. What should she do? First, she needs to make sure that there is no bleeding from the umbilical cord stump or if there’s any other sign of infection in either mom or baby. Next, it would be important to know what color fluid is coming out of this new born child so they can get an accurate hemoglobin level which will help determine their need for transfusions as well as if additional care may be needed due to Rh incompatibility. This information could save lives!
