1. We are in the process of designing our new NICU, we were asked what we would love to have, and I was wondering what all of you at there love about your NICUs? Such as how they are designed, (ie private rooms, couches for parents) Thanks for all your input...

    the powers that be neglected to put a bathroom in ours. since we sometimes get down low enough census-wise to use only 1 nurse over there, it can be a problem. with the dim lights and no outside windows, we lovingly call it 'the dungeon'. -- stuck in the dungeon again...

    if i could change anything about it, i would have a camera and buzzer to buz visitors in at the door. i would also like to have the beds a little farther from the nurses station with more of an alcove type space for families to visit. curtains around every bed would be nice for the breastfeeders as well.
