Sparrow RNICU celebrates successes

Caregivers in the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit celebrated their successes and new initiatives during a party last week.
Caregivers gave presentations on their successful efforts to increase skin-to-skin and breastfeeding rates and decrease infection rates among their Patients. The RNICU cares for infants who are born prematurely or with other complications, and these initiatives play a huge role in improving outcomes.
The event also marked the kick-off of Parent PALs, a group of former RNICU families who are partnering with medical staff to find new ways to provide family-centered care.
Each year Sparrow's RNICU cares for nearly 600 acutely ill infants from throughout mid-Michigan. The RNICU team provides each infant with care 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sparrow's RNICU offers multiple treatment options and specialized equipment designed to support each infant's developmental needs.
