Children's NICU

  1. Didn't realize I put this in the wrong spot, sorry for the respost!

    Just had a quick question for anyone who works at denver Childrens, does anyone know if the NICU keeps their cardiac babies or if the cardiac babies are sent to the cardiac intensive care unit pre/post op?

    Just wondering, thanks!

    I'm pretty sure their NICU keeps all their newborns, regardless.

    Thanks for the info, I know at the children's hospital I am at now the CICU takes all cardiacs, occasionally they may be sent to the NICU once stable but needing to grow, etc but otherwise all cardiac babies are in the CICU. I would love to find a NICU that has all the cardiac newborns as the cardiac stuff really interests me but the older children don't really.
