Midwife Erythromycin Ophthalm Ointment Consent Mobile App
Antibiotic eye ointment is routinely given to newborns in the hospital.
How does it work?
It is given to prevent eye infections that could result in blindness. If a mother has Gonorrhea or Chlamydia the baby may get infected at birth. Most women have been tested for these sexually transmitted diseases as part of their routine prenatal care. Women at high risk for these diseases would be wise to have the newborn treated routinely. Some parents who are certain they are not infected refuse routine treatment. Any baby, whether treated or not, needs to be evaluated if any signs of infection develop in the baby’s eyes after birth. Use the Midwife Erythromycin Ophthalm Ointment Consent mobile app to allow parents to give consent for treatment.
