Abstract

Purpose: To improve sleep environment safety for inpatient infants. Design and Methods: This quality improvement project involved assessment of sleep environment safety for inpatient infants before and after a bundled intervention of staff education and introduction of swaddle sacks and bedside storage bins. Results: The proportion of infant cribs without loose objects in them increased (32–72%, p =.025), and safe sleep positioning remained stable (82% vs. 95%, p =.183). Practice Implications: Staff education, swaddle sleep sacks, and bedside storage containers were associated with improved sleep safety among pediatric inpatients at our institution and may help at other institutions.
