NICU Standard 16: Administrative Space

Administrative space shall be provided in the NICU for activities directly related to infant care, family support, staff supervision, or other activities routinely performed within the NICU.

Interpretation: A wide range of personnel are assigned to the NICU, many of whom require office or administrative space. When planning the NICU, administrative space should be considered for each discipline that provides service to the unit on a daily basis and needs a distinct area for carrying out their responsibilities, even if that individual has additional office space elsewhere.
