Hi, I'm doing some research on combined care of NAS infants and moms. This is when the moms room in to learn how to take care of their infant and at the same time get rehab for the addiction.
I have used this model on a limited basis with great results, shorter stays, less need for meds, lower finnigans etc.
I would like to know if anyone has used this model.
There is a hospital in Canada that does this.
But for those that work in a traditional NICU I would also like to know what the nurse infant ratio is for NAS infants. Thanks.
