Apgar Scoring in the Newborn
Students read about the importance of the Apgar score in assessing the newborn after delivery. Each sign of the Apgar score is identified with illustrations to help the student recognize the proper rating.
Learners read definitions of terms related to legal, insurance, and advocacy issues regarding the elderly. At the end of the activity, learners test their knowledge in three matching exercises. Some of the programs and groups discussed are Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, long-term care insurance, OBRA, SSI, and CWAG.
