NC Immunization Registry - Update

The pilot phase using the North Carolina Immunization Registry (NCIR) in the Newborn Critical Care Center at NC Children’s Hospital ended on July 31 and the staff nurses and managers are evaluating their processes and results. This information will be used with evaluations from the NCIR to plan future trainings for  Newborn Critical Care Centers in North Carolina. Although a relatively few immunizations are given to babies recovering from critical illnesses or the consequences of prematurity, this initiative will provide critical information to providers who assume primary care of the babies who graduate from intensive care units.
