Abstract

This case-control study investigated the association between isolation precautions and the frequency of infant-caregiver interaction in the NICU. Interactions were discretely counted; cases and controls were matched by isolation status. Cases had fewer interactions than controls (median, 4 vs 8; P <.0001). Further research is needed to determine whether this reduction impacts patient outcomes.
