Children's Hospital NICU Nurses Recognized
Date:5/4/2009

Named 'Best Nursing Team' by ADVANCE for Nurses

Madera, CA (Vocus) May 4, 2009 -- Today ADVANCE for Nurses Magazine named the Children's Hospital Central California Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurses as "Best Nursing Team." The award was announced in a cover story in ADVANCE.

"This is a great honor and wonderful recognition for one of our top nursing teams," said Beverly Hayden-Pugh, Vice President and CNO, Children's Hospital. "We know our NICU nurses are providing the best care out there, and now so does everyone else."

ADVANCE for Nurses evaluated nursing teams in twelve different areas, providing scores in areas like dealing with change, promoting ongoing education and working effectively as a team. The Children's Hospital NICU team scored high in all areas, not a surprise to Hayden-Pugh. "They are truly a dedicated team of nursing professionals who work hard together to create one of the top NICUs in the state of California. We have empowered them to make decisions about practice, education and quality, and they have used it at great benefit to the unit."

Some of the nursing-based NICU initiatives detailed in the award nomination were:

  • Enhancing the "Kangaroo Care" policy to define and promote the incredible benefits to mothers, fathers, and babies.
  • Improving patient safety by redesigning the process of breast milk management.
  • Redesigning the waiting room and visiting policy to be more consistent with Children's Hospital's family-centered care philosophy.
  • Establishing a Developmental Care task force to focus on promoting development of neonates through various age-appropriate interventions.
  • Facilitating and encouraging professional development
