about the nicu

 
If your baby is sent to the NICU, your first question probably will be: What is this place? With equipment designed for infants and a hospital staff who have special training in newborn care, the NICU is an intensive care unit created for sick newborns who need specialized treatment.

Sometimes the NICU is also called:

  • a special care nursery
  • an intensive care nursery
  • newborn intensive care

Babies who need to go to the unit are often admitted within the first 24 hours after birth.Babies may be sent to the NICU if:

  • they're born prematurely
  • difficulties occur during their delivery
  • they show signs of a problem in the first few days of life

Only very young babies (or babies with a condition linked to being born prematurely) are treated in the NICU — they're usually infants who haven't gone home from the hospital yet after being born. How long these infants remain in the unit depends on the severity of their illness.

Who takes care of your baby??

Although many people help care for babies in the NICU, those most responsible for day-to-day care are nurses, whom you may come to know very well and rely on to give you information and reassurances about your baby.

The nurses you might interact with include a:

  • charge nurse (the nurse in charge of the shift)
  • primary nurse (the one assigned to your baby)
  • neonatal nurse practitioner (someone with additional training in neonatology care)
