Abstract

Technology‐dependent infants are a medically complex, diverse group of individuals, many of whom can be cared for at home. Hospital discharge of any technology‐dependent infant requires a multidisciplinary, comprehensive program of discharge planning and follow‐up into the home. This article presents an overview of the technology‐dependent infant population and a discussion of many of the pertinent issues for consideration during the discharge planning period and the transition from hospital to home.
