Nursing Care Plan – Hyperbilirubinemia (Jaundice)
Hyperbilirubinemia (jaundice) in the neonate is an accumulation of serum bilirubin above normal levels. Onset of clinical jaundice is seen when serum bilirubin levels are 5 to 7 mg/100 dL. Physiologic jaundice occurs 3 to 5 days after birth and is an increase in unconjugated bilirubin levels that do not exceed 5 mg/100 dL/ day.
