RIBEIRO, Catarina Renata et al. Parents’ and nurses’ perceptions of Nursing care in neonatology: an integrative review. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2015, vol.serIV, n.4, pp.137-146. ISSN 0874-0283.

Background: The admission of a Newborn (NB) to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) requires specialised skills from nurses in order to not only assess the NB’s biological features, but also focus care on the NB/parents binomial. Objectives: To analyse the scientific evidence on the Nursing care experienced at NICUs from the perspective of nurses and parents of NBs during their hospital stay at those units. Methodology: An integrative literature review was conducted. The following databases were searched in the EBSCOhost platform: CINAHL; MEDLINE and Cochrane. Scientific studies published in databases of reference from 2004 to 2013 were selected based on previously defined inclusion and exclusion criteria. Results: Nine studies which emphasised the diversity of perceptions of care were included. The analysis of these studies allowed organising the results into three themes: therapeutic relationship, humanisation of care and suffering. Conclusion: The evidence obtained in this study suggest that parents of NBs admitted to NICUs experience a great emotional overload and need to receive information and support from nurses.
