drinks at nurses station - NICU/NCCC UNC

  1. Interested in finding out if you can have a covered drink container at the nurse's station in each pod of the NICU, or NCCC at UNC Children's hospital. Thankyou!

    I don't know about UNC but at PCMH in Greenville, NICU nurses are not allowed to have any drinks at the nursing station or patient areas. Drinks are marked by name and left in the staff lounge.

    There are no nursing stations in each of the pods. There is one in the front of the unit and one at the back. There are no drinks allowed for the staff. All drinks must be kept in the break room. Parents are allowed to have covered containers of water at the bedside if need be.
