Staying Informed

Family Centered Care
As part of our family centered care we encourage families to be part of the care and daily planning. We offer several opportunities for our families to participate in discussions about the on-going care their babies are receiving: 
 
Hourly Rounding by Nursing Staff: Every hour/every day
 
Interdisciplinary Bedside Rounds - 10 a.m., M-W-F
A discussion with all of the NICU team members about your baby’s care.
 
Bedside Report - 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., 7 days a week
A sharing of information among the NICU nursing staff directly caring for your baby at the change of shift about your baby’s care.
 
Family Conference - on request, any day
A more formal report by your physician and our NICU staff to update you about your baby’s medical needs and to answer your questions.
 
Physician - on request, any day
One-on–one conversation with a neonatologist in person or by phone to discuss your baby’s medical status.
 
Although the above times are available for you to meet with the NICU team that cares for your baby, you may request to speak with your nurse or physician about your babies care at any time.
