2022 Stronger - P112 - Wombmates to Roommates: Rooming-In to Manage Infant Withdrawal - On Demand
Faced with increasing rates of babies born with neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS), we recognized the need to develop a program to provide more comprehensive care for these patients. We focused on the idea of rooming-in, whereby discharged moms are allowed to stay in an inpatient room with their admitted baby. Our pilot demonstrated that rooming-in reduced the need for medication treatment and resulted in shorter lengths of stay for this patient population. The rooming-in process was well received by the nurses and parents experienced little to no anxiety.
