Rate of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome per 1,000 Newborn Stays by County of Residence FYs 2016-2017 Health Care Cost Containment Council (PHC4)

Countywide counts of newborn hospital stays with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and countywide rates of newborn hospital stays with (NAS) per 1,000 newborn stays. 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.
