NNU Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) is a Local Neonatal Unit (LNU) caring for babies from 27 weeks gestation and with a weight above 800gms.
The Unit has a dedicated team of Paediatric Consultants, Neonatal Matron/ANNP and Specialist trained nurses.
The Unit has a Doctors ward round between 08.30-10.30am (finishing times vary). Parents are welcome and encouraged to be in attendance when the Doctors see their baby. Parents will however be asked to leave the nursery in order to maintain confidentiality while Doctors are discussing other babies.
The Unit has a strict hand hygiene policy and all visitors to the Unit must wash their hands as they enter and as instructed afterwards.
We are able to offer Donor breast milk, daily breastfeeding classes on our postnatal ward and have a full time breastfeeding lead and discharge co-ordinator to fully prepare parents when they are ready to go home.
We have daily quiet times which gives parents an opportunity to have undisturbed time for kangaroo care and quality time with their baby.
Unrestricted visiting hours for parents, we do ask that no other visitors attend after 8pm. Siblings of the baby are welcome to visit but need to be supervised. Visitors are limited to 2 people per baby and we always require visitors to be accompanied by one of the parents.
Visitors are encouraged to stay away if unwell to avoid spreading infections.
