Abstract

To the Editor: Brooten et al. (Oct. 9 issue)1 reported on early hospital discharge with home follow-up of very-low-birth-weight infants. We are investigating a cohort of 97 very-low-birth-weight infants who were discharged from the hospital after a mean (±SD) of 52.9±25.1 days and at a mean weight of 2065.5±21.6 g, excluding 22 infants transferred to other hospitals because of over-crowding or parental desire. Sixty-seven infants (69.1 percent) spent some time in a progressive nursery to which they were transferred from the neonatal intensive care unit after their condition was stabilized. Our high-risk group, sampled from a charity hospital neonatal intensive.
