Babies can come to the neonatal ICU from several different places. One way is for the labor and delivery nurse to notice a problem that prompts a direct admission to the unit. Alternately, the baby can come to the neonatal nurse through the mother/baby unit if issues arise that are critical as the baby ages. Finally, an emergency admission from home may lead to a baby arriving in the neonatal ICU, depending upon hospital policy.
