Mean Length of Stay (LOS) for all Pennsylvania general acute care hospital stays for newborns, categorized by the presence or absence of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).
Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, or neonatal drug withdrawal, is an array of problems that develops shortly after birth in newborns who were exposed to addictive drugs, most often opioids, while in the mother’s womb. Withdrawal signs develop because these newborns are no longer exposed to the drug for which they have become physically dependent.
This analysis is restricted to newborns with Pennsylvania-state residence who were hospitalized in Pennsylvania hospitals. Additionally, hospital stays with rehabilitation revenue codes and hospital stays that ended in a transfer or mortality were excluded.
