Feedback:
A single IM dose of vitamin K is given to newborn infants to prevent hemorrhagic disease of newborns. The infant does not need multiple injections of vitamin K to prevent hemorrhage. The administration of vitamin K will not protect from infection. Vitamin K is not used to enhance nutrition.
