Neonates with critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) are vulnerable to malnutrition during the post-operative period due to hypermetabolism and hypercatabolism. To improve nutritional outcomes during hospitalization, a nurse led post-operative enteral feeding protocol was implemented at a large U.S. children's hospital. During an eight-month implementation period, twenty-one neonates met protocol inclusion criteria. Days for neonates to achieve goal caloric feedings (120kcal/kg/day) were decreased. A one-way repeated measures analysis of variance showed serum albumin levels and serial anthropometric measurements improved significantly throughout hospitalization (p<0...

The Social Stories™ intervention has been used as a practical intervention to assist children's social understanding, and its benefits can be extended to health care settings. Family-centered care (FCC) refers to the planning and offering of health care services beyond the patient by encompassing the whole family members as a unit, including siblings (Shields, Pratt, & Hunter, 2006). Grounded in child life concepts and the literature on the evidence of utilizing children's narratives as a promising teaching approach, this article features the creation of a NICU Story rooted in Gray's Social Stories™ guidelines (Gray, 2010) to support siblings of pediatric patients...
