Health Care System Factors for Infant Safe Sleep

Health Care System Factors

Pediatricians, family physicians, and other primary care providers should actively participate in the Safe to Sleep campaign. Providers should ensure infants be immunized according to the American Academy of Pediatrics/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention schedule. Furthermore staff in newborn nurseries and NICUs (newborn intensive care units) should endorse and practice the SIDS/SUID risk-reduction recommendations from birth.
