Neonatal ICU Nurse expert witness

Neonatal ICU Nurse expert witness (NICU Nurse Expert Witness) is a nursing sub-specialty that works with newborn infants that are born with a variety of problems ranging from premature birth, birth defects, infection, cardiac malformations, and other complications as a result during labor and delivery such as HIE (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy). Neonatal ICU Nurse expert witness can testify about the care of newborns (neonates) with complex problems requiring treatment in the Neonatal ICU (NICU).  Neonatal ICU Nurses (NICU Nurses) treat newborns who are less then a month old, however these newborns are often sick for months and may stay in NICU for as long as two years of age. NICU Nurses assess, monitor, and care for vulnerable infants whose conditions range from stable to life-threatening.

NICU Nurses undergo specialized training to allow them to care for this delicate population who don’t have voice of their own and a NICU nurse becomes the voice of this smallest and sickest patient. Most of the Neonatal nurses have earned CCRN-Neonatal specialty certification. Neonatal ICU Nurses undergo further hospital-based training and continuing medical education to competently monitor and manage newborns in an ICU setting. They work closely with a team of medical professionals including Neonatologists, Pediatric Surgeons, and Pediatric Infectious Disease specialists to achieve the best outcomes for their patients. Neonatal ICU Nurses also work closely with families to ensure that they’re educated on day-to-day developments and special needs during this challenging time in parenthood.
