SCOPE: All organizational components of the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) accredited campu • Not respecting the NICU infection control policies. If you are not well, you must stay home. Babies need healthy parents and are also very vulnerable to infections. Also, everyone in the NICU must follow strict hand hygiene guidelines which will help keep everyone safe. • Not respecting other NICU families or staff Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a frequent source of infections affecting premature and critically ill infants in neonatal intensive care units. Neonates are particularly vulnerable to colonization and infection with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and many studies have attempted to identify risk factors that predispose certain infants to its acquisition in order to. Another creative way to report infection control data used at Dartmouth's NICU is by prominently displaying to the staff the number of days since the last NI, similar to workplaces that report.
