ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Nurses from Phoebe Putney, who take care of the tiniest patients are working to educate others about their work. 

The National Neonatal Nurses Conference is taking place in Savannah next month.  Nurses from NICU at Phoebe worked on posters like this which help educate others about the way healthcare is administered to babies as they move into and then hopefully out of this unit.

Mindy Spencer said, "It's all about the babies and the mommas, to make them have the best care possible in our region." 

Jennifer Bradley said, "To ensure that no gaps are left in their care, everything is included.  Patient safety is our number one priority."

Mary White said, "We wrote up a synopsis, a summary of the things that we've implemented in NICU and submitted that info to the NNN conference so it can be presented."

Six posters, which describe the work nurses in the NICU do, will be presented at the conference in Savannah next month.
