  • No Place Like Home: Improving the Transition From NICU to Home Through the
           NICU to Nursery Program

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Toole; Cheryl; DeGrazia, Michele; Andrews, Theresa M.; Bouve, Mary Ellen; Pezanowski, Regina; Cole, Alexandra; Kourembanas, Stella; Hickey, Patricia A.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Boston Children's Hospital's Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) discharges about a third of its medically complex infants home. Parental feedback indicated a need for more education and training in discharge preparation.Purpose: The NICU to Nursery (N2N) program was created to better prepare parents to care for their medically complex infants following Level IV NICU discharge. The goals were to (1) mitigate safety risks, (2) assess parent satisfaction, (3) assess pediatric primary care providers' (PCPs') satisfaction, (4) assess community visiting nurses' and PCPs' knowledge deficits, and (5) develop educational materials.Methods: The N2N program provided parents with pre- and postdischarge assessments with an experienced nurse. Parents completed a survey following assessments to measure satisfaction. To enhance PCPs' knowledge, they were sent summary reports and asked for feedback. PCP feedback, along with a needs assessment of community visiting nurses, guided the development of free Web-based educational videos.Results: One hundred and fifty-five parents participated in the N2N program. Parents' educational needs included medication education, safe sleep, and well-infant care, with some requiring significant nursing interventions for safety risk mitigation. Most PCPs found the home visit reports helpful. Knowledge deficits identified among PCPs and community visiting nurses included management of tubes and drains, growth and nutrition, and emergency response. More than 100,000 providers viewed the 3 Web-based educational videos developed.Implications for Practice and Research: The N2N program fills a crucial gap in the transition of medically complex infants discharged home. The next steps are developing best practices for virtual in-home assessments.

  • Competing Tensions: Nurse Perceptions of Family-Centered Care and Parents'
           Needs in Neonatal Care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Carew; Maddison; Redley, Bernice; Bloomer, Melissa J.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Family-centered care is founded upon collaboration between parents and healthcare professionals, caring for a child and parents as one entity. The unfamiliar neonatal environment and complexity of care can make family-centered care challenging.Purpose: To explore neonatal nurses' perceptions of family-centered care and parents' cultural needs.Methods: This was a qualitative descriptive study using interviews to gather data from registered nurses, and analyzed using inductive content analysis.Results: Ten neonatal nurses participated in online interviews, lasting an average of 25 minutes. Parents' cultural needs were poorly understood and assumed synonymous with family-centered care. While all acknowledged the importance of family-centered care, most described tasks to parent–infant bonding, rather than a broader embodiment of family-centered care. In time of uncertainty, emergent clinical priorities took priority over a family-centered approach to care. Cultural care was poorly understood, and care tasks associated with supporting parent–infant bonding suggest further work is necessary to promote embodiment of family-centered care beyond individual tasks. While emergent clinical priorities and neonate well-being will always be the priority, finding a way to respond that concords with the ethos of family-centered care is also essential.Implications for Practice and Research: Clear and consistent leadership is needed to demonstrate greater embodiment of family-centered care, which includes cultural care for parents. Strong leadership and targeted education are key to supporting this change. Further research is warranted to examine and observe practice, in particular how parents' cultural needs are assessed and integrated into family-centered care in neonatal settings.

  • Topical Use of Human Milk in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit: An
           Integrative Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brodbeck; Abby; Esser, Media S.; Jacobson, Emma; Helminiak, Grace; Islas, Dominique
      Abstract: imageBackground: Research has shown that the bioactive components in human milk could demonstrate efficacy when applied topically. One common neonatal skin issue is diaper dermatitis (DD). DD treatment and prevention guidelines often lack the inclusion of topical human milk as a viable option.Purpose: To analyze the safety and efficacy of topical human milk application as a means to support future research of human milk as a topical treatment for DD.Data Sources: Google Scholar, CINAHL, PubMed, and Cochrane.Study Selection: The search was limited to articles published between 2011 and 2023 in the English language. Disqualifying characteristics included nonhuman subjects, literature reviews, inability to obtain articles, and non–peer-reviewed articles.Data Extraction: For Google Scholar, the search terms “human milk OR breast milk” and “topical” were used. For CINAHL, PubMed, and Cochrane, the search terms “human milk OR chest milk OR breast milk OR donor milk” and “topical” were used. Quantitative significance was defined by a P value of less than .05.Results: The search yielded 20 articles. The results of the review demonstrate that topical human milk application is a safe and effective topical treatment to skin integrity/inflammatory issues such as DD. It also identified that caregivers will likely show positive regard to the treatment, promoting its acceptance.Implications for Practice and Research: The results provide evidence to support methodologic development for human milk application for the prevention and treatment of DD. Further studies can use the results to develop protocols that investigate the effects of human milk application.

  • Development, Psychometric Testing, and Reference Values of the Infant
           Eating Assessment Tool (InfantEAT)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pados; Britt F.; Hill, Rebecca R.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Problematic feeding is common in infancy, particularly in infants with a history of premature birth or medical complexity. A concise, valid, and reliable measure of feeding that can be used across feeding methods is needed for clinical practice and research.Purpose: The purpose of this study was to create an assessment tool to evaluate symptoms of problematic feeding in infants that can be used across all feeding methods (breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, and mixed feeding), then test its psychometric properties and establish reference values.Methods: Item response theory (IRT) was used to identify the most important items on the Neonatal Eating Assessment Tool (NeoEAT) related to symptoms of problematic feeding in infants (N = 1054) to create the Infant Eating Assessment Tool (InfantEAT). Reliability of the InfantEAT was tested using Cronbach's α and interitem correlations. Reference values of the InfantEAT were determined from a sample of healthy, full-term infants (n = 561). Percent agreement in identifying problematic feeding between the NeoEAT and the InfantEAT was calculated.Results: The InfantEAT is comprised of 31 items in 9 subscales. The InfantEAT has evidence of acceptable reliability (α = 0.88). There was 74% agreement between the NeoEAT and the InfantEAT, with the InfantEAT being more sensitive to identifying problematic feeding. References values are presented for infants 0 to 2, 2 to 4, 4 to 6, and 6 to 7 months.Implications Practice and Research: The InfantEAT is a reliable and sensitive tool to evaluate symptoms of problematic feeding across feeding methods for infants younger than 7 months in both practice and research.

  • Being a “Good Parent” to a NICU Infant With a Major Congenital
           Anomaly

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Uveges; Melissa K.; Hamilton, Jill B.; Pados, Britt F.; Thayer, Winter M.; Hinds, Pamela S.; Nolan, Marie T.
      Abstract: imageBackground: In the United States, up to one-third of infants with a congenital anomaly require neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) hospitalization. Parents of these infants may have different decision-making priorities, which may be influenced by the timing of the infant's diagnosis.Purpose: (1) To compare the ranked importance of decision-making beliefs for parents of infants who received a prenatal versus postnatal congenital diagnosis and (2) explore how parents describe their decision-making beliefs.Methods: A cross-sectional, sequential mixed-methods pilot design was applied to collect quantitative data using the Good Parent Ranking Exercise and further explore parents' decision-making beliefs through qualitative interviews. Maximum difference scaling/hierarchical Bayes estimation and content analysis were used to analyze the quantitative and qualitative data, respectively.Results: Forty mothers completed the Good Parent Ranking Exercise and 20 mothers completed qualitative interviews. Four of the top 5 ranked parenting beliefs were shared by mothers in the prenatal and postnatal groups. Mothers in the postnatal group ranked “focusing on my child's quality of life” higher. Qualitative interviews revealed that previously identified decision-making beliefs were consistent in this NICU parent population, with 1 additional belief identified. Mixed-methods analysis revealed high concordance between the prenatal and postnatal groups.Implications for Practice: NICU nurses need to know that decision-making beliefs for parents who receive a prenatal versus postnatal congenital diagnosis, while largely similar, may have differences.Implications for Research: Future research should explore decision-making beliefs in demographically diverse parent groups (ie, fathers, partnered vs nonpartnered couples) and effective strategies for promoting NICU parents' decision-making beliefs.

  • The Safety of Body Wraps on Skin-to-Skin Care in the Neonatal Population:
           A Pilot Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Freccero; Allison; Scala, Melissa; McLeod, Kelly Andrasik; Donahue, Bridgette; Webb, Macey; Briggs, Michelle; Najm, Ivette; Sinha, Monica; Santagata, Lauren; Dahlen, Alex; Nasr, Annette
      Abstract: imageBackground: Despite well-established benefits of skin-to-skin care (SSC) for preterm infants and parents, standardized guidelines for implementation do not exist. Furthermore, the literature offers little evidence-based information to guide best practice.Purpose: To discover whether SSC using a body wrap to hold preterm infants would increase the duration of SSC, decrease parental stress during SSC, and minimize adverse events to ensure that body wraps are safe and feasible.Methods: Twenty-nine dyads of parents and preterm infants younger than 34 weeks postmenstrual age were enrolled. The first 15 dyads to meet inclusion criteria were assigned to a standard of care group for SSC with no body wrap. The remaining 14 dyads were assigned to an experimental group for SSC with a body wrap. Each dyad performed 2 SSC holds. Parents completed the Parental Stressor Scale and Parent Feedback Form. Adverse events were also documented.Results: No statistically significant differences were found between the 2 groups in total SSC time (P = .33), the number of adverse events (P = .31 for major events; P = .38 for minor events), average parental stress (P = .22), and parental confidence performing SSC (P = .18).Implications for Practice and Research: This study found that SSC with a body wrap is safe for preterm infants in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This is the first study to explore the use, safety, and effectiveness of body wraps during SSC with preterm infants in an NICU. Future research should be conducted with larger sample sizes to further evaluate the safety and efficacy.

  • Family Integrated Care Shortens the Duration of Home Oxygen Therapy in
           Infants With Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shen; Fei; Wu, Xiao; Chen, Xiu-li; Rong, Hui; Yang, Yang
      Abstract: imageBackground: There have been few reports on whether family integrated care (FIC) can help premature infants with moderate to severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) to shorten the duration of home oxygen therapy (HOT).Purpose: To investigate the effect of FIC on the duration of HOT in premature infants with moderate to severe BPD.Methods: The subjects were retrospectively selected from premature infants with moderate to severe BPD in our center between June 2019 and December 2021. Patients were divided into the FIC group (n = 47) and the non-FIC group (n = 34). For univariate analysis, t test, Mann–Whitney U test, Pearson χ2 test, or Fisher exact test was performed to explore the differences between the 2 groups. For multivariate analysis, simple and multiple linear regression was conducted to explore the effect of FIC on the duration of HOT.Results: (1) The duration of HOT and length of stay after grouping were significantly shorter in the FIC group than in the non-FIC group (P < .05). (2) The results of linear regression further revealed that FIC could significantly shorten the duration of HOT (simple linear regression, FIC [A] B: −12.709, 95% confidence interval (CI): −21.665 to −3.753; multiple linear regression, FIC [B] B: −11.419, 95% CI: −18.055 to −4.783).Implications for Practice and Research: FIC improved the optimal target oxygen saturation ratio before discharge and shortened the duration of HOT in premature infants with moderate and severe BPD. FIC should be promoted in China's neonatal intensive care units, though it puts forward new requirements for nursing education and training.

  • Neonatal Assessment: Put Your Best Foot Forward

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Moss; Colleen Reilly; Nation, Helen
      Abstract: imageBackground: Assessment of the foot is an essential part of the newborn examination. Foot abnormalities range from an isolated deformity due to intrauterine positioning to a functional impairment due to a structural malformation. The purpose of this article is to review assessment, abnormal findings, and current treatment options of common foot deformities.Evidence Acquisition: A review of literature was conducted using keywords in PubMed, Google Scholar, and CINAHL databases from 2018 to 2023.Results: Although assessment techniques for the neonatal foot remain the same, recent nonsurgical treatment options are available for a variety of neonatal foot deformities. Early recognition allows for proper evaluation of foot deformities and corrective measures.Implications for Practice and Research: Neonatal providers equipped with knowledge of common foot problems can provide support and anticipatory guidance to families.

  • A Feasibility Study to Test the NICU Paternal Needs Inventory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Merritt; Linda; Verklan, M. Terese
      Abstract: imageBackground: There has been little research exploring paternal needs while experiencing a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) stay. Some tools exist to measure paternal needs, but do not incorporate items to capture important information about how fathers cope with stress differently, and may have different needs. Therefore, an instrument is needed to measure and prioritize what needs are important to fathers to help facilitate the development of nursing interventions to help fathers cope with the NICU environment.Purpose: The purpose of this study was to conduct a feasibility study before large-scale pilot testing the instrument, the NICU Paternal Needs Inventory (NPNI), so we could then determine what are the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of fathers.Methods: A nonexperimental, quantitative, and descriptive design was used to address the study's aims. Fathers were recruited from a level IV NICU and asked to complete an online survey (consisting of a demographic survey and the NPNI).Results: Needs rated 100% were knowing infant's progress, directions on caring for infant, flexible visitation, and assurance receiving the best care. The remainder showed a wide range of responses suggesting that needs of fathers are individual and varied.Implications for Practice and Research: Use of the NPNI to evaluate a father's unique and individual needs would allow for the nurse to develop father-specific, individualized interventions. Findings support that the NPNI is feasible to accomplish measuring fathers' needs, but a larger study is needed to test the reliability and validity of this tool.

  • Application of the Adverse Childhood Experiences Framework to the NICU

      Authors: Malin; Kathryn J.; Vittner, Dorothy; Darilek, Umber; McGlothen-Bell, Kelly; Crawford, Allison; Koerner, Rebecca; Pados, Britt Frisk; Cartagena, Diana; McGrath, Jacqueline M.; Vance, Ashlee J.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Infants and families requiring neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) care often experience significant stress and trauma during the earliest period of the infant's life, leading to increased risks for poorer infant and family outcomes. There is a need for frameworks to guide clinical care and research that account for the complex interactions of generational stress, pain, toxic stress, parental separation, and lifelong health and developmental outcomes for infants and families.Purpose: Apply the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) framework in the context of the NICU as a usable structure to guide clinical practice and research focused on infant neurodevelopment outcomes and parental attachment.Methods: An overview of ACEs is provided along with a detailed discussion of risk at each level of the ACEs pyramid in the context of the NICU. Supportive and protective factors to help mitigate the risk of the ACEs in the NICU are detailed.Results: NICU hospitalization may be considered the first ACE, or potentially an additional ACE, resulting in an increased risk for poorer health outcomes. The promotion of safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and implementation of trauma-informed care and individualized developmental care potentially counter the negative impacts of stress in the NICU.Implications for Practice and Research: Nurses can help balance the negative and positive stimulation of the NICU through activities such as facilitated tucking, skin-to-skin care, mother's milk, and active participation of parents in infant care. Future research can consider using the ACEs framework to explain cumulative risk for adverse health and well-being in the context of NICU care.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vance; Ashlee J.; Farmer, Meredith L.; D'Agata, Amy; Moore, Tiffany; Esser, Media; Fortney, Christine A.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Neonatal care has advanced significantly in recent years, yet racial health inequities persist in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), with infants from racial and ethnic minority groups less likely to receive recommended treatment. Healthcare providers acknowledge that there are steps that can be taken to increase knowledge and awareness regarding health inequities.Purpose: To better understand current health equity–related initiatives in the neonatal community and solicit feedback from National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) membership about advancing racial equity within the organization.Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted in January 2021. The anonymous, onetime survey was distributed to active NANN members via SurveyMonkey and included questions related to racial equity initiatives, recommendations, and demographics. Data analysis was conducted using an exploratory approach using descriptive statistics, and thematic analysis was used to summarize responses to open-ended questions.Results: There were 325 members who completed the full survey, of whom were White (83%), female (96%), staff nurses (42%), and those with more than 16 years of experience (69%), and most (69%) were familiar with NANN's racial equity position statement. Recommendations were summarized into the following themes: (1) research, (2) education, (3) workforce diversity, (4) communication, (5) scholarships, (6) resources, and (7) community outreach.Implications for Practice and Research: NANN members offered clear and actionable recommendations to advance health equity within the neonatal community and organization, which included offering more diversity, inclusion, and equity education at the annual conferences, in ANC articles, and newsletters, and the creation of scholarships or reduced membership fees to encourage diverse enrollment in the organization.

  • The Evaluation and Treatment of an Infant Exposed to Nongenital HSV-2: A
           Case Report

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Staggs; Jenna
      Abstract: imageBackground: Pregnant persons with a primary genital herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection can transfer HSV to the fetus or infant through the placenta or birth canal, which can cause significant infant morbidity or mortality. Primary nongenital infections with HSV-1 or HSV-2 in pregnant persons and the risk of infant infection are not well documented, leaving the clinician to make non-evidence-based decisions on evaluation and treatment in such presentations.Clinical Findings: A term newborn was delivered vaginally by a pregnant person with a nongenital HSV-2 infection. The pregnant person's rash first appeared around 32 weeks' gestation, started on their lower back, and terminated on the outer left hip. The rash improved but was still present at time of delivery, and this rash was their first known HSV outbreak.Primary Diagnosis: Prenatal exposure to HSV-2.Interventions: Diagnostics included the pregnant person's rash surface culture, immunoglobulin G and immunoglobulin M for HSV-1 and -2; infant surface, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), and serum HSV-1 and HSV-2 polymerase chain reactions (PCRs), infant CSF studies, blood culture, liver function tests, and treatment with intravenous acyclovir.Outcomes: This infant remained clinically well during hospitalization and was discharged home at 5 days of life when CSF, surface, and serum PCRs resulted negative.Practice Recommendations: Risk for infant HSV infection versus parent/infant separation and exposure to invasive procedures and medications should be considered when pregnant persons present with primary versus recurrent nongenital HSV infections. Research is needed for the evaluation and treatment of infants born to pregnant persons with primary nongenital HSV infections in pregnancy.
