Abstract

A joint program involving a traditional neonatal intensive care unit and a pediatric rehabilitation unit was developed to care for the increasing number of infants with chronic illnesses requiring long-term specialized care. The program emphasizes provision of a more normal, age-appropriate environment, parent education, and opportunities for extended parent-child interaction.
