Here in the Salem Neonatal Intensive Care unit we believe in Family Integrated Care (FIC). We are one of the first American NICU’s to offer NICU Families a BED next to their sick baby. They can sleep next to their baby and do kangaroo care for as many hours possible. The family is integrated into the care of their baby! There are so many benefits for the baby and family by doing this. It promotes better breast milk production, better growth of the baby, improved brain growth, improved bonding, less family stress and better communication. We made a video about our FIC and shared it Internationally. We also have many photos.
