A nurse in a newborn nursery is performing an assessment of a newborn infant. The nurse is preparing to measure the head circumference of the infant. The nurse would most appropriately:
A. Wrap the tape measure around the infant’s head and measure just above the eyebrows.
B. Place the tape measure under the infants head at the base of the skull and wrap around to the front just above the eyes
C. Place the tape measure under the infants head, wrap around the occiput, and measure just above the eyes
D. Place the tape measure at the back of the infant’s head, wrap around across the ears, and measure across the infant’s mouth.
Place an order in 3 easy steps. Takes less than 5 mins.
