Neonatal Collaborative

The Maryland Patient Safety Center invited all hospitals with Level II and Level III nurseries in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia to join its Neonatal Collaborative. Participation is free of charge but requires a commitment of staff time and executive support. This initiative is being supported by a generous grant from CareFirst® BlueCross® Blue Shield®.

Participating hospital teams will work toward the aim of the Neonatal Collaborative:

  • Reduce healthcare-associated infection through the implementation of evidence-based preventive care practices
  • Decrease neonatal mortality, chronic lung disease, and length of stay through standardized resuscitation and stabilization of the neonate in the first hour of life (Golden Hour)
  • Improve teamwork and communication through the implementation of team behaviors, including the family, into neonatal care
