My Observation at the CWC Clinic: The women’s health clinic performs several different test and procedures depending on how far along the patient is in their pregnancy. During my experience I was on the high risk floor and was able to observe several tests including Group B Streptococcus (GBS), and urine dipsticks. GBS can cause infant mortality but is considered normal flora for the mother. GBS can be found in the pregnant mothers’ vagina or rectum.

This common test goes on to be administered in one to five minutes after birth; however, if “a baby has serious health problems or the first two scores are low, the test may also be given 15 minutes after birth and additional times” (p. ). The APGAR Scores will examine for activity (muscle tone), pulse, grimace (reflex irritability), appearance (skin color), and respiration. Ultimately, this form of norm-referenced assessment does
