Lipke, Bethann; Gilbert, Gael; Shimer, Heather; More

MCN: The American Journal of Maternal/Child Nursing. 43(1):32-37, January/February 2018.

It is not uncommon for mothers to fall asleep while holding their baby during postpartum hospitalization. In this context, newborn babies are at risk for falls and suffocation. The clinical team at one hospital developed a newborn infant safety bundle to promote safe sleep and minimize risk of infant falls and drops. Results are promising in preventing unsafe sleep conditions and newborn falls.
