When you have a baby that is born early or with a serious illness it is usually an unexpected event. That is why it will be reassuring to know that the Neonatal intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Windsor Regional Hospital is experienced in caring for these special infants. Both your baby and you will be provided with the best of care.
A multidisciplinary team will all work together to care for the infant in our modified Level III unit. Interdisciplinary rounds are held on all infants starting at 9:30 am each morning. Families play an important role in the care of their infants in the NICU. We promote family-centred care and encourage families to participate in the care of their infants as much as possible.
Neurodevelopment Follow-up Program
The Neurodevelopment Program enrolls all infants born less than 32.6 weeks gestation and/or less than 1500 grams until the age of 6. Developmental assessments are done focusing on motor skills, cognitive and social development. This helps aid in the transition from hospital to home.
Neonatal Follow-up Program
This program enrolls infants that are born at 33 to 35.6 weeks gestation and continues until the age of 2. The purpose of this program is to monitor and evaluate growth and developmental milestones, review any medical problems and discuss any anticipated long-term outcome issues.
This program is for infants who are at "high risk" of developing Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). Risk factors include:
