Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Have you ever heard of the NICU? Do you know what the letters stand for? Do you know where you'd find the NICU? If you said NICU stands for neonatal intensive care unit, you would be correct. If you said you could find it in a hospital, you'd be right again.
 
2     The neonatal intensive care unit is a special part of the hospital. It is filled with trained hospital staff and advanced equipment geared to taking care of newborns that have very unique medical needs. Other names for this part of the hospital include special care nursery, newborn intensive care, and intensive care nursery.
 
3     Not all newborns stay in this unit. Only the newborns with special medical needs do. Many of them were born prematurely. Some of them experienced problems while being born. Others started to show difficulties during the first few hours of their very young lives. How long babies remain here depends on their needs.
