A pregnant mother has arrived for induction of labor. As you are helping her with her gown she asks about vaccinations her baby will receive. She also asks why her newborn baby will get a shot of Vitamin K1. "Is it because I didn't eat a healthy diet?" What is the nurse's best response?
Vitamin K1 is injected for added immunity that the baby does not have at this stage.
Vitamin K1 promotes the growth of bacteria in the baby's sterile bowel.
Vitamin K1 will decrease the risk for bleeding.
This vitamin K1 shot is used as a prophylaxis for jaundice.
