Impact of Increased Parent Presence in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on Parent & Infant Outcomes

Official Title: Impact of Increased Parent Presence in the NICU on Parent & Infant Outcomes

The purpose of this pilot study is to compare parent and infant outcomes and unit outcomes pre and post a planned unit-wide intervention aimed at increasing parent presence in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The FCC intervention will consist of communicating an expectation that all NICU parents be present at minimum 4 hours/day versus the current practice of telling families to "come as much as they can" that has resulted in inconsistent parent presence.
