– Farrah Pradhan, parent member of the guideline development group
As a parent of two children that were both born prematurely, I know first-hand what a difficult and trying time this can be, especially if a baby also has a bacterial infection. I welcome these guidelines, and I hope they will help healthcare professionals deliver excellent care to pregnant women and their newborn babies.
The heathcare watchdog claims some hospitals are causing unnecessary delays in treating newborn babies suffering infections. New guidance has been published after variations were found in the treatment of babies with early-onset neonatal infection.
