Safe Sleep for Hospitalized Infants

Project Description: 2016 Recommendations for a Safe Infant Sleeping Environment (Pediatrics,138[5]) endorses several safe sleep initiatives for staff to role model and use in educating parents. As a quality improvement project the units of Mother Baby (35/95), Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU), Pediatric Intensive Care (10-2, 10-4) and the general Pediatric units (44, 45) would like to visually audit the current level of practice and compliance with the AAP guideline on Safe Sleep for Hospitalized Infants. These audits and trends will be collected and reported to the Pediatric Fall Task Force and then to the Pediatric Quality Council. The audits will guide staff education regarding the guideline and practices, as well as parent education.
