Baby Girl M. is a 34-week gestation infant, who is admitted to the NICU for low blood sugar and difficulty breathing. Upon admission of the infant, the RN is informed that the mother refuses newborn screening. The mother is also refusing vitamin K and ophthalmologic prophylaxis.

Under what circumstances is it appropriate for the mother to decline the newborn screen?
How should the nurse communicate his or her nursing interventions to others when a patient’s mother declines the newborn screen?
