The nursing staff is responsible for the day-to-day care of your baby. All nurses working in the NICU are specialized in critical care neonatal nursing. Nurses provide support to parents as they learn more about their infant and the care they requires.
Our nurses work 8 and 12 hour shifts. Shift changes are as follows:
The resource nurse (sometimes called a “charge nurse”) coordinates daily care on the unit, providing continuity of care to our patients and families. In this role, the resource nurse also offers clinical support and leadership to the inter-professional health care team.
The registered respiratory therapist (RT/RRT) provides expertise in the management of babies that require oxygen therapy and/or breathing support.
The unit secretaries will welcome you at the reception desk and when you call into the unit. They can also assist you with general questions about the NICU.
