Injury from treatment (eye damage, dehydration, sensory deprivation) can occur. Interventions include exposing as much of the newborn's skin as possible; however, the genital area is covered.

The newborn's eyes are also covered with shields or patches to ensure the eyelids are closed. The shields are removed or shifted at least once to inspect the eyes for infection or irritation and to allow for eye contact. The nurse measures the quantity of light every 8 hours, monitors the skin temperature closely, and increases fluids to compensate for water loss.
