I have worked in the NICU and have had two preemie grand daughters in the NICU. Staff are always willing to answer questions but too little time is spent in education. The NICU is intimidating. A formal education for family would benefit both family and baby. If time was spent on what is expected and what are the norms the process would improve. Education on the pain process is step in the right direction.
