Covid 19 Response: Christine Mc Dermott. RANP Neonatology, The Rotunda Hospital Chair, IAANMP.

The COVID 19 Crisis has affected healthcare delivery across all settings including Maternity Services. Visiting restrictions have been particularly burdensome for everyone especially for parents of premature and ill new born infants with very limited access the NICU. Technology has been our friend and has enabled us to send them videos and photos of their infants when they cannot be there. Discharge preparation is now online for parents to access, staff education following suit and zoom our new best friend. Communication has never been more vital as we adapt to this new reality.
