August 2016: Is hospital-assisted home care after early discharge from a neonatal intensive care unit safe?
Björn Lundberg et al. have reviewed the files of 1,410 infants enrolled in hospital-assisted neonatal home care at a Swedish neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) from 2002-2011. The programme was found safe for the vast majority of infants (94.8%). However, Gorm Greisen, who recently published experiences from an early discharge programme in Denmark, expresses his concerns in the accompanying editorial. He states that two cases of sudden infant death syndrome out of a combined total of 2,000 infants in the two studies suggests that there may be a problem. Readers may also be interested to see the paper by Charlotta Robinson et al, who report that using telemedicine to help care for newborn infants after their NICU discharge reduced the need for hospital visits.
