Hypoglycemia in Newborns

Project Description: As a quality improvement project the units of L&D and MB (35/95) would like to survey the current level of education regarding the care of Hypoglycemia Newborns. We would like to collect data regarding the hypoglycemic newborn's treatment. The latest literature reports that glucose gel administered according to the newborn's glucose level decreases the need for formula supplementation and or IV Dextrose. Glucose gel is an accepted/researched/EBP method for transient newborn hypoglycemia.
