5 focus areas when diapering a NICU baby – ANA Continues to Speak Out Against Harmful Cuts to Health Care. – (866) 348-2889
It was 7:45 a.m. Tammy, my neonatal nurse colleague, approached me as I was catching up on documentation.
She said, “Will you see baby Isaiah with me at 8 a.m.? He’s very unstable and I know he’ll do better if we work together to support him.”
Isaiah was a sweet, 2-day-old boy, born at 25 weeks gestation, weighing about 700 grams. Even something as “routine” as changing his diaper caused him to become bradycardic. In order to help Isaiah tolerate such care, we had to support him both medically and developmentally.
