Why are babies admitted to neonatal care at full term?
There are a variety of reasons why full term babies need to be cared for on a neonatal unit.
According to the Bliss-supported NHS England programme, which looked at reducing the number of term admissions on to a neonatal unit, the five most common reasons were:
- Respiratory conditions (about 25 per cent of all term admissions)
- Infection (about 18 per cent of all term admissions)
- Hypoglycaemia – this is where a baby has low levels of glucose in their blood (almost 12 per cent of all term admissions)
- Jaundice (around 6 per cent of all term admissions)
- 81 per cent of these babies received phototherapy
- 33 per cent received intravenous fluids
- 1.6 per cent received a blood transfusion
- Asphyxia (HIE) (2.5 per cent of all term admissions)
Who Can Visit the NICU?
Parents can visit and spend time with their babies who stay in the NICU. Other family members might be able to visit, but only during set hours and only a few at a time. Children visiting the NICU must be well (not sick) and should have all their immunizations. Check with the hospital staff about which family members can see your baby.
Some units require guests to wear hospital gowns. You may need to wear gloves and a mask.
Everyone who comes into the NICU must wash their hands before they enter. (There will be a sink and antibacterial soap in the room and near the entrance of the NICU.) This is a crucial part of keeping the NICU as clean as possible so the babies aren’t exposed to germs.
You may be tempted to bring toys, decorations, or other items in your baby’s room, but check with the nurse first. If allowed, these things should be easy to clean (no stuffed animals). Some hospitals let parents tape pictures or other decorations to the outside of a baby’s incubator.
