BAPM publishes guidance on cot capacity

BAPM has published a document Calculating Unit Cot numbers and Nurse Staffing Establishment and Determining Cot Capacity which aims to help professionals determine optimal cot numbers and neonatal nurse staffing for individual units within a network and to facilitate decisions about admission when a unit is close to capacity.

It provides supplementary guidance to BAPM Framework for Practice - Service Standards for Hospitals Providing Neonatal Care. It should be used in conjunction with Safe, Sustainable and Productive Staffing, the recommendations of the Neonatal Review in England, and the recommendations of the Maternity and Neonatal Services Review in Scotland, as well as existing standards in each of the UK nations.
