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

through support of specialty certification for nurses
  • Developing a clinical "pocket resource book" for new nurses

  • The award nomination acknowledged the nursing team's participation and support in developing new criteria and workflow processes to support an expansion of Children's NICU that added 23 private rooms in October, 2008. Children's is one of the first hospitals in California to offer private NICU rooms, allowing parents to remain at their baby's bedside throughout their stay. Children's has the only Regional Level III NICU in Central California, and this expansion brings the total NICU bed count to 104, giving Children's Hospital Central California more neonatal capacity than any other general or children's hospital in California

    Community-based efforts leading to the award included the annual "Preemie Graduate Picnic" held for nearly 30 years. The event brings together former NICU patients, staff and families to celebrate their success. Additionally, the nomination noted two Children's NICU nurses who are developing neonatal curriculum to support the initiation of an NICU in Nepal. They will be traveling there this summer to offer their expertise.

    Children's outcomes with neonates under 1,500 grams is consistently better than other Level III centers in the state. Their adjusted mortality rate for this population is 9.2% compared to a 12.2% California average. Children's 'case-mix index' (a number that compares the severity of different populations), is the fourth highest of all 37 NICUs in a nationally comparative database. In other words, on average, the babies that come to Children's are more seriously ill than those that come to 33 of the other NICUs, and yet they have better results than all of their regional peers.

    This award comes in addition to Children's Magnet Recognition Award for Excellence in Nursing Services from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Children's w
