Your baby’s care: Measuring standards and improving neonatal care

Reports, Patient Focused Reports | Published: 27 Sep 2016 | Author: HQIP

One in eight babies born in the UK will spend at least a few days in hospital in a neonatal unit which specialises in looking after babies who are born early, with a low weight or who have a medical condition that requires specialised treatment.

Some babies may need breathing support or monitoring, or may be suffering from other medical conditions. Other babies may have an infection and need antibiotics. The length of a baby’s stay may vary from days to weeks or months, depending on their needs.
