Watford General Opens New Baby Unit
Staff at Watford General Hospital are celebrating the formal opening of a new Neonatal Transitional Care Unit, which will provide improved nursing care for newborn infants up to 28 days after birth.
The 6-bedded unit has been developed in order to enhance the quality of care provided to mothers and babies accessing maternity and neonatal services in west Hertfordshire.
It will provide an area where babies, who require closer monitoring, treatment and support than that of a post-natal unit, can be nursed alongside the mother, thereby avoiding unnecessary separation.
West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust’s Director of Nursing Natalie Forrest said: “I am proud to formally open the new Neonatal Transitional Care Unit. We believe that this will provide greater capacity to manage the growing demand for our Women’s and Children’s services from the people across our region”.
She added: “Specifically on neonatal care, it will avoid separation, promote the developing mother/baby relationship, enhance breastfeeding and result in earlier discharge home. We firmly believe that the opening of this new unit will further progress our key goals to improve the patient’s hospital experience”.
