Decreasing Variation of Care through use of Length Boards in ELBW Infants
Project Description: Neonatal length is a primary indicator of neonatal nutrition and forms the basis for important future treatment decisions. There are a variety of methods used to assess the length of infants. However, the use of length boards to measure infant's length is a more accurate measurement of length and therefore is a more reliable indicator of neonatal nutrition. This project was designed to assess the variablity in lengths and variability from normal growth curve Z scores before implementation of the length board and after implementation.
