Original Question: What chairs/recliners are used at your organization to promote skin-to-skin/kangaroo care.
Summary of Responses
ORG A: No specialty chairs/recliners in the rooms. The NICCU has two recliners that can be pulled in as needed. Otherwise, therapists and nursing work with parents to use existing chairs or beds/couches, using pillows to promote any positional support.
ORG B: Rooms have rocker/recliners that are used. No specialty chairs.
ORG C: Annina glider/recliners by Office Environments. Feedback is that they wished the wheels were better.
ORG D: Standard recliner with a foot rest and pillows. No specialty chairs.
