IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM, LEVEL III NICUs are increasingly caring for low birth weight (LBW) and extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. This subpopulation represents a most fragile and vulnerable group that is subject to numerous complications. An ever-important concern is the development of health care– associated infections.
