I have been a NICU nurse for over 20 years. And still am. I taylor my reports to whoever is taking. I might give all the details to s newer nurse. We have kardex's for all our babies from which we give report from. I read what I think is important to the oncoming nurse. Other wise they can read it themselves for more details. Personally I would rather just have the recent important details.
We just went to private rooms and now allow up to four people at a time. Have to say I liked it better when we could only have two at the bedside. It's sometimes hard trying to maneuver around four people
I feel the same way. I'm an RN in NICU and I have very little compassion for drug addicted parents. They rarely visit and when they do they wake the baby (who has not slept all day) and when they hear the high pitched crying they leave. In fairness though some parents do try to stay straight and are interested in caring for their infant. Very difficult situation to handle with compassion.

I work in NICU. If we called a code I don't think anyone would come. We handle our own codes. There are always docs and nnps around. If there is a newborn baby code in er the NICU nurses go. Nurses, docs, nnps and rt are all certified in NRP.
