The resources you need to support your professional development and sense of purpose inside and outside the NICU.
Paragon’s SafeBaby® team spends a lot of their time speaking with NICU professionals. Since the beginning, we’ve consulted with experts in the medical field to continue to develop better modules that work seamlessly within NICU processes. Our technicians and product managers need to understand not just what SafeBaby® does, but why, so that they can provide nurses with intelligent, meaningful product support. Therefore, we find it important for every member to be well-informed on regular protocols, industry breakthroughs, and scientific advancements.
Implementing what we’ve learned from NICU research into our software design is a large part of why SafeBaby® is the best breastmilk tracking and validation system available. We’ve archived much of these resources here for your enjoyment and perusal.
We hope that the NICU research we’ve gathered here will aid you in your continued education as a neonatal care provider.
