There are two family participation rooms in the NICU, where parents may stay overnight with their child before she or he is discharged. This is to help parents gain confidence in feeding, giving medicines, handling special equipment and to gain confidence with their baby. A parent lounge is also available which provides parents with beds, lockers, shower, and bathroom facilities.
As your new baby grows stronger and healthier, the NICU staff wants your stay to be as comfortable and pleasant as possible. Parents are encouraged to ask questions, make requests, become involved in discharge planning, and learn all they can about the care and treatment of their baby.
