The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a 13 bed unit specialized in the care of the newborn after birth. Patients are admitted after birth for any complications, genetic disorders, or prematurity. We are a level 3 NICU taking care of infants born as early as 28 weeks. Our NICU also has a collaboration with the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia and has a Neonatologist in house 24/7. If an infant is born outside of our criteria we will stabilize the infant and transfer to another facility. Some of the clinical skills performed include: assisting with procedures, central lines, spinal taps. Monitoring vital signs, administering medication, assessing enteral intake and recognizing any changes in assessments that can lead to many life threatening diagnosiss. Nursing Care focus is Family Centered Care and developmental care to create a soothing environment for these infants to continue to grow. Registered Nurses are responsible for establishing a therapeutic relationship and an individualized plan of care with the patient for a defined period of time (length of stay on that unit) and for communicating that plan of care to his/her collaborative partners. The collaborative nurse follows the plan of care created by the Attending Nurse and the patient/family, making revisions based upon the patients response to treatment and changing needs. Registered Nurses are accountable for planning, delivering, coordinating, evaluating, and modifying the patients care for that defined period of time and for effectively transitioning that plan of care with attention to continuity across shift and settings of care. It is expected that the patients and/or families will know the name of the Attending Nurse, and the collaborative nurse. In order to achieve the defined outcomes of care, the registered nurse will assure that patients and families experience exceptional cooperation among all members of the health care team who treat them and each other with dignity, respect and sensitivity.
