Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Follow-Up
Deaconess Hospital hosts Riley physician, Kenneth Hermann, MD from the Women's Hospital. Dr. Hermann cares for babies who are discharged from the NICU at The Women's Hospital. Having a baby in intensive care can be a very scary thing. Knowing that your child will receive first-rate care both during and after provides peace of mind.
Many of the infants needing care were born prematurely. Some require medical intervention after discharge. Medical interventions that we frequently monitor are oxygen, apnea monitors, and medications.
