"The other day, In January of 1965. although it’s not uncommon for an infant who is still showing symptoms to be placed in a foster home Others though suffer so much that they must remain in the hospital during the entire detox process and some even need morphine for pain “I have had babies that have been heroin addicted that have been in the NICU for seven and a half weeks” the source said “The cries that these babies have raises the hair on the back of your neck”Infants who are dependent on methamphetamine are often born premature “When they start with their withdrawal they’re harder to arouse they have poor quality of movement and if their meth exposure is large enough there’s twitching sneezing sweating and you’re unable to calm them” the source said Shielded informationThe topic is sensitive and one that a number of local agencies and educators declined to talk about Administrators at Williston’s Mercy Medical Center the only hospital in the region that delivers babies would not provide any information on the frequency of infants born there who test positive for controlled substances Randy Schwan a spokesman for Trinity Hospital where babies born in Williams County are often sent for treatment of withdrawal symptoms said the facility keeps records of infant patients’ birthplaces but does not track how many are admitted for addiction If such information was available he added he did not know whether it would be released The owner of a Williston laboratory and drug testing business said he could not speak about the issue after asking permission to do so from agencies including local medical facilities and social services offices that he run tests for Murky record-keepingThe problem is hard to quantify due mostly to record-keeping systems that don’t specifically track instances of infants born with controlled substances in their systems Positive drug tests done on newborns are reported to the state but the information is recorded under an umbrella category of child abuse and neglect Once the incidents are documented there is no way to pull out numbers specific to rates of prenatal drug exposure because no separate classification for it exists On top of that there is no defined standard for testing infants Reasonable suspicion of a mother’s drug use seems to be the barometer used by hospitals creating the possibility that some exposed babies slip through the cracks “We suspect that not all of these cases are being reported” said Marlys Baker administrator for child protection services in the children and family services division of the Department of Human Services “There is a state law that does give doctors permission to test without the parent’s permission but how often that’s happening and under what circumstances we don’t know We think there are varying policies in different hospitals on testing”The state’s child welfare system developed in 2009 is operated by the Department of Human Services The agency’s information collection is designed to capture what it needs to report to the federal government which in turn uses three benchmarks — safety permanence and well-being — to measure child health state by state Regardless of cumbersome record-keeping Sandy Richter child protection supervisor for Ward County Social Services in Minot said she has seen a “significant” rise in babies testing positive for controlled substances at birth along with older children who are exposed to drugs at home Although rising drug use is an obvious culprit Richter pointed out that increased awareness and mandatory reporting requirements are likely contributing to the jump in numbers there as well Task force to examine scope of problemSuch increases aren’t limited to the Bakken region The issue is causing concern statewideAt the beginning of last year the North Dakota legislature created a task force made up of lawmakers and representatives from health care social services and law enforcement to research the severity of the problem across the state The group aims to examine the cost of treating mothers and babies affected by substance abuse evaluate existing services that offer them help and figure out how to increase public awareness about the dangers controlled substances pose to unborn babies “This (task force) was absolutely needed We know that this is a concern we know it’s happening in North Dakota but we don’t know the incidence or severity North Dakota does not have one data source concerning neonatal abstinence syndrome” said Kim Mertz maternal and child health director for the state Department of Health In the meantime the health department has applied for a grant to study health decisions made by North Dakota women during their pregnancies A monitoring system like that hasn’t been in place in this state for more than 10 years Mertz added State Sen Nicole Poolman R-Bismarck was the driving force behind the creation of the task force Motivated by a foster mother in her district who expressed concern over the number of babies in the foster care system there who’d been exposed to drugs Poolman realized that gathering information was a critical first step in addressing the issue The group’s primary focus for now is to figure out the scope of the problem statewide and how to help pregnant drug users “There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that it is a problem and it is increasing” Poolman said “We just want to get as many healthy babies born as we possibly can”The group aims to devise ways to offer resources to expecting women rather than threatening them with legal consequences “One of the goals of the task force is insuring that we don’t make it a crime. and? 26%; Miami, embassy staff is shrinking.
