Please put your cell phone on the vibrate mode when coming into the NICU. A quiet environment will help your baby grow and develop well.
- Avoid using your cell phone when holding your baby. This will help prevent the germs living on your cell phone being transferred to your baby. This is YOUR special time to focus on and bond with your baby.
- Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol hand rub before and after cell phone use will help prevent the germs on your cell phone being transferred to your baby and/or your baby’s bedside.
- Remember if you want a picture of you holding your baby, your baby’s nurse would be glad to take the picture(s).
- If your cell phone won’t be damaged, please clean it with an alcohol wipe upon entering the unit.
