Hospitals push safe sleep practices for infants
Philadelphia Inquirer, July 7, 2009
For the last year, parents have been banned from sleeping with their sick babies at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. The hospital instituted the policy after three infants over three months were pronounced dead in the emergency room after bed sharing-related accidents at home. The hospital's ER typically gets one such death every couple of months. But the tragedies early last year inspired St. Christopher's nurses to propose that the hospital lead by example.
