What to expect when you arrive
Level II Nursery
West Valley Hospital’s Level II nursery provides care for babies born at 32 weeks gestation or greater, and for those who need close supervision or extra help after birth. The nursery staff dedicated to caring for your baby consists of registered nurses who are specially trained in Level II Care, neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatologists, and pediatric primary care providers.
Sometimes babies in a Level II nursery may need monitoring for apnea, IV’s, special medications, an incubator or other assistance to maintain their body temperatures or nourishment intake. Level II staff work closely with families, teaching them about any special procedure or medication your baby may need at home.
Most babies born several weeks early will spend some time in a Level II nursery for observation.
Babies with more serious conditions may need to be transferred to a hospital with a higher level care unit.
