PROBLEM: Nonorganic failure to thrive, child abuse and

neglect--documented outgrowths of faulty parent-infant

interactions. Parents of infants discharged from NICU or Special

Care Units express concerns regarding their caregiving abilities,

which may result in difficulties in interacting with infant.



PURPOSE: To describe parental responses to caring for infants at

home during weeks 1 and 4, following discharge from NICU (phase 1)

and a Special Care Unit (phase 2).



DATA COLLECTION: 10 families for each phase (20 families)



ANALYSIS: Content analysis for themes, patterns and categories were

done.



FINDINGS: (l) No relationship between number of other children,

severity of infants illness, length of hospital stay, parental age,

and parent's expressed concerns; (2) Social support included both

negative and positive facets; (3) Parent's perceptions of the

transition home differed from professional's perceptions as

perceived by parents; (4) Parents feared the infant would become

ill again or die; (5) Parental role expectations were not clear;

(6) Parent-child development included concerns about discharge

preparation, self-confidence, and role expectations of parent and

child; (7) Information needs concerned infant care and normal

infant characteristics; and (8) Parents desired home visits or

follow-up by professionals after discharge.
