Neonatal jaundice (Hyperbilirubinemia) Nursing Care Plans

The main reason for jaundice is increased amount of bilirubin in the body. When the RBC breaks down in the liver, it produces a yellow colored substance called bilirubin. In jaundice total sirum bilirubin level exceeds more than 3 ml/dl.

There are three main types of jaundice:

1. Hemolytic jaundice
2. Hepetocellular jaundice
3. Post-hepatic jaundice

To get rid of these problems, the patient needs the right treatment, In which a nurse along with a doctor also plays an important role in removing these problems of the patient. A nurse assess his problems to take proper care of his patient and also collects data from the patient about his problems. The nurse prepares a care plan with the data received by the patient and the assessment done by himself.
