The “SHEA neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) white paper series” is intended to provide practical, expert opinion, and/or evidence-based answers to frequently asked questions about infection detection and prevention in the NICU. This document serves as a companion to the CDC Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) Guidelines for Prevention of Infections in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Patients. This document was authored by pediatric infectious diseases specialists, neonatologists, advanced practice nurse practitioners, infection preventionists, members of the HICPAC guideline-writing panel, and members of the SHEA Pediatric Leadership Council. For the selected topic areas, the authors provide practical approaches in question-and-answer format, with answers based on consensus expert opinion within the context of the literature search conducted for the companion HICPAC document and supplemented by other published information retrieved by the authors.
