2019-10-24 Renewal 3270.119 - Infant sleep position Compliant - Finalized

Noncompliance Area: When asked what position a sleeping infant, whom was observed on her belly, was placed in the crib, staff reported the child was placed on her belly to sleep.

The medical reason shall be documented in a statement signed by a physician, physician's assistant or CRNP and placed in the child's record at the facility.

Provider Response: (Contact the State Licensing Office for more information.)
All infant room staff have been re-trained on the correct sleep positions according to the Academy of Pediatrics. All staff know that all infants are to be placed on their backs to sleep. If an infant can roll on their own after being placed on their back, they may remain in that position. I will continue to monitor the sleep patterns of the infants and do frequent checks of the infant room staff to make sure they are following the proper procedures for putting sleeping infants down on their backs at all times.
