The New NICU

An interesting story yesterday in the NYTimes about redesigned NICUs, which aim to be more like the mother's womb. The NICU at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, where M & J were born, was one of the new kind -- with private rooms, dim lighting, muted alarms -- and it really was nice. Restful, even. I worried at first that the nurses wouldn't be as watchful, but they actually responded very quickly to the alarms (a lot faster than they did at Georgetown during Josephine's stay.)
