Quality improvement in the NICU: increasing the use of own mother’s milk

Katie James, Paul Bolla, Vanessa Sakalidis, Nania G. Schärer-Hernández


Human milk (HM), particularly own mother’s milk (OMM), is one of the highest impact, low cost interventions in the medical field with research constantly finding new and more impressive data to support this. OMM should be considered a medical intervention and an institutional priority, especially for those babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). However, no other medicine is administered, tracked or reported on as haphazardly as HM in the NICU.
