Reflecting on the impact of the pandemic in the neonatal environment

As a peripatetic nurse who used to relish the freedom to travel to work in remote

rural Australia on nursing contracts, whilst maintaining a casual contract in

Wellington NICU, the past two years have been supremely challenging, not least

because I remain unable to return to NZ under the current MIQ arrangements, but

primarily as the consequences of the pandemic continue to roll out, the negative

impact on nursing care within Australian neonatal units that I have worked in, is

alarming; I am concerned that the great advances that have been made in recent

years to involve parents in the care of their baby are being eroded dramatically.
