Each morning, the care team does “morning rounds” at the bedside to discuss updates on your baby’s condition and develop the daily plan of care. We encourage you to participate in this discussion with your own comments and questions. If you are unable to attend morning rounds, the doctor or nurse practitioner calls you to discuss the plan of care for the day. We also communicate updates about your baby’s status in the NICU to your referring physician.
You should receive updates from your doctor or nurse practitioner daily, either by phone or in person. It is important to make sure that the NICU has your updated phone number in your baby’s chart.
Your primary doctor in charge of your baby’s care (attending neonatologist) changes every two weeks. Our team of neonatologists work together to develop and carry out the plan of care for you baby during his or her hospitalization.
