|With premature babies standing better chances of survival than ever, hospitals need to increase the number of neonatal nurses to cope with the growing number of infants in need of their care, a nursing group has said.
The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has said that every baby in a neonatal intensive care ward should have one nurse dedicated to their care alone.
In a statement launched with a series of organisations, the RCN has called for 70 per cent of registered nurses working in intensive care wards to undergo specialist education in neonatal nursing care.
