Abstract

Background: Research has highlighted transitioning to the new design may be challenging for staff. To facilitate the transition to a new NICU we have searched literature to find strategies other units have implemented during their transition.

Methodology: Literature was retrieved via electronic and manual searches of MEDLINE, CINAHL, Science Direct and Cochrane databases. A list of keywords directed our search: Intensive Care Units, Neonatal, Hospital Design and Construction, Single Room Design (SRD), Change Management and Staff Attitude to Change.

Results: Seven articles provided detailed outlines of the strategies they implemented during transition to SRD. Our search has also highlighted the limited published work on solving staff issues post transition.

Conclusion: This review provides an outline of strategies to facilitate the transition when changing NICU design. Future research that specifically targets the issues highlighted by staff may assist in finding long term solutions for those transitioning to a new NICU design.
