Excellence in Nursing Award for project to reduce brain injuries in premature babies
Sparrow’s Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU) has received a major national Nursing award for an innovative project to reduce brain injuries in premature babies. The project — part of the quality and innovation we use to transform care in the mid-Michigan region — focuses on a form of brain injuries called intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), which can lead to future hospitalizations and numerous risk factors in our smallest preemies.
