Special Care Nursery Admissions

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 19, 2011- The March of Dimes Perinatal Data Center has partnered with the National Perinatal Information Center/Quality Analytic Services (NPIC/QAS) to describe special care nursery admissions among NPIC/QAS member hospitals.

Specialty care was defined as any time spent by the infant in a neonatal intermediate care unit (NINT, Level II nursery) or a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU, Level III nursery) bed at any time during the hospital stay. Key findings from the analyses included:

  • 14.4% of newborns delivered at or transferred to NPIC/QAS member hospitals were admitted to a special care nursery.
  • Among all special care nursery admissions, 49.1% were preterm, 50.4% were term (37-41 weeks) and less than 1% were post-term.
  • The average length of the hospital stay for newborns admitted to a special care nursery was 13.2 days, with an average hospital charge of $76,000.
