Following Baby Back Home

The goals of the Following Baby Back Home program is to reduce preventable re-hospitalizations, improve adherence to medical appointments and immunizations and to build the family’s skill and confidence in providing a safe, nurturing home for their baby.
A home visiting team made up of an RN and a social worker will provide teaching, support and case management services for families of high-risk infants following their discharge from the NICU. This service is free of charge and will be available as long as it is needed.

Target Population

Babies must be referred from a NICU in the state of Arkansas.
