Does anyone know if Cabell Huntington routinely drug tests all newborns? I know a girl that is pregnant and a HUGE pillhead. I am hoping they will test the baby at birth and place it with someone who will take care of it.

If there is reason to believe the mother used during pregnancy then the baby will by watched for signs of withdrawl and possibly put on methadone. But more than likely the baby will go home with the mother once it is weened.

To who? CPS can't do anything until the baby is born. The police can't do anything but arrest her for possession and even then, they have to have a valid reason to search her or her home. With all of the drug activity in Huntington, they're not going to be concerned with one person.

There is a whole unit at CHH devoted to newborns who are addicted.

The NICU is NOT just for drug addicted babies. It's for babies who are born premature for any reason. There is a clinic/program for addicted pregnant women somewhere in Huntington.

Actually they had to open up a new part of the nicu for drug addicted babies. Don't call people names if you don't even know.

It's located on the old mother-baby unit.

This is true and sad at the same time... that this town is so drug ridden that a hospital had to build a whole unit just to assist these poor defenseless babies from their disgusting parents... smfh

They are moving awy from methadone in infants. They are using morphine now. As a nurse I am trained to look at every newborn for withdraw. You just never know. I cannot have children and it makes me sick that these mothers are doing this to the babies!

I didn't call anyone names. I've been using this screen name long before this thread started. Perhaps you should take your own advice about not talking about something you know nothing about, genius.

And a "section" of the NICU is not it's own unit. I had a friend in HS whose mom was a NICU nurse and she said there were a lot of babies then that were born addicted. That was almost 20 years ago, so with the increase of drug of drug use in this area, I can't imagine what it's like now. Just one more thing to remind everyone of what a wasteland Huntington is.

If you report the mother and have specifics then CPS will open an investigation and look into it. The mother could possibly be asked to have a drug test and the hospital will be notified and baby will be tested. Not that it will do a lot of things but it will make the mother more accountable. They have started a new section specifically for babies born addicted to drugs....and this doesn't just happen in Huntington or wasteland as someone called it. There was a CBS special on this and although Huntington was featured it was not the main focus or the only one! It's sad when it happens anywhere or to anyone, especially an innocent child. There are plenty of people who will take these babies if the mother doesn't want them.

I just watched the special on CBS via youtube and that was the saddest thing I have seen in a long time. I was bawling through most of it.

I as a mother would have enough will power to clean up my act the second I found out I was pregnant. I use to live in a house with a roomate who smoked pot when I found out I was pregnant by my BF. I immediately moved in with my sister because I knew that was no place for a baby. I just dont get this. I COULD NOT work in a hospital with babies who come out addicted. I would always wonder what happened to them after they went home and I would go crazy.

It is a unit. The Neonatal Therapeutic Unit is separated from the NICU.
