Nicu nurse. I want to people to remember that the nicu is still an icu, not a baby nursery. I understand you want everyone to see your baby, but those babies are at high risk of developing infections so having a lot of visitors is not in the baby’s best interest. Another reason is they need their rest to grow and heal. Also, our nicu has a neo that comes to round during the day, but after that they are on call, the nurses and nnps are the ones there to take care of those patients.
