Our smallest and often most fragile patients are in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). It's a special place where these patients often face tremendous challenges under the care of dedicated health care workers. As an infection preventionist (IP), I am honored to work alongside the nurses, physicians, and other clinicians in the NICU. I have worked for over 8 years at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. Our hospital is a regional center for high-risk obstetrics and houses over 70 NICU beds, including 34 beds in the level IV NICU.
