Tiny newborns face higher risk of death at community hospitals, Stanford/VA study finds

struggling, premature infant and a baby who dies before delivery. Attending physicians available around the clock can also respond at a moment's notice to any signs of trouble, for example.

Although low-level community neonatal ICUs are required to partner with higher-level centers, the study suggests that the relationships offer little benefit to tiny babies unless the laboring mother is transferred before the delivery to a facility with sophisticated obstetrical and neonatal support. "It's not good to move these kids around," said Phibbs. "The best way to transport a very premature infant is inside the mother.

"It's not that we think the community services are bad or poorly staffed," he added. "But a regional structure of services may be best able to help these kids."
