Summary

Parents who have infants in the MUSC NCU will be asked to give their opinions about the discharge process as their infants transition from receiving hospital care to being cared for at home. The parents will complete surveys and interviews to offer their feedback. The parents' opinions will be compared with the infant's unexpected readmission to the hospital after discharge, if it occurred. Parents will also decide what is most important for a successful discharge of the infant. The factors that parents consider to be most important will also be compared to which factors nurses find to be important.
