I've started a program in our NICU (22-bed, Level III) where the Lead (delivery) nurse rounds on the antepartums on bedrest for PTL/PPROM. Basically, the NICU RN makes sure the parents understood the Neo and what they will be facing, answers questions about the NICU and makes sure a tour happens if they are interested. We do this 1-2 x/week that they are with us. We don't answer any specific questions regarding diagnosis, LOS or outcome - that we leave to the docs and NNPs. Our management loves this idea because it could potentially raise our satisfaction scores (that is a whole other topic!)
Are any of your hospitals doing something like this? I've been searching for programs that are similar.
