A newborn infant is dying or has just died. The mortality rate in the United States for newborn is 4.56 per 1000 live births. Recent reviews have focused on the importance of bereavement support and the profound effect health care providers can have on parents who have lost an infant. Studies have shown that a health care provider’s insensitivity to a parent can contribute to difficulties in coping and may increase the risk of a complicated grief reaction. Nurses who received training for bereavement care were more likely to have a positive attitude toward perinatal bereavement care. Studies show that more physicians than nurses never received any formal training in bereavement care. Hospitals should establish training and protocols for an infant death so they can potentially decrease the traumatic effects.
