Description:

Through the Safe Sleep Going Home Program we provide wearable infant sleep sacs and safe sleep parent education materials for families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Hospital staff then provide the sleep sacs to families at discharge to reinforce safe sleep practices when families go home. The NICU staff may also make a request for a family for a Family Support Grant so that the family also has an infant crib.

Through the Safe Sleep Going Home program we also work with the NICU staff to facilitate referrals to the local public health nurses so that families can be connected to their local community resources and care coordination.
