New neonatal initiative launched to improve parents’ experience

The Lister’s neonatal unit team has launched a new initiative to improve parents’ experience.

They are now providing parents with noise-reduction headphones, funded by the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity with support from the Lister Neonatal Unit Families Group, to be used whilst clinical staff carry out ward rounds. By using the headphones, parents can spend more time with their babies to help them bond and confidential information about other babies can be kept private.
