Developed by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, Baby Steps to Home is the first standardized, evidence-based discharge pathway designed for nurses. The resource is available online to all hospitals across the country. Baby Steps to Home contains downloadable documents for professional education as well as easy-to-understand handouts that nurses can share with parents prior to their baby's discharge.
Included in this resource are:
- Ten steps of discharge covering 25 topics from common diagnoses to follow-up appointments
- Downloadable evidence-based PDFs for nurses
- Parent handouts that explain the condition, suggest questions for parents to ask their baby's providers, and provide practical information and tips
- Modifiable parent handouts in English and Spanish that allow you to include your hospital's logo and other unit-specific information
