Abstract

Transport is a move involving a change of location for a neonate. Any move, be it from one bed to another or from one hospital to another, is a transport. Each transport has one main goal, and that is to get from point A to point B with no adverse effects to the infant or those caring for the infant. From the moment the infant is born, there is a constant state of transport. This article will describe the "transport of a neonate" and the special considerations that comes with this population.
