NICU FITS: Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fragile Infant Transition Summary™



Content from the HealthActCHQ Manuals (including norms, proprietary scoring algorithms, weights etc. and related syntax) or items from the surveys themselves may not be included in any appendices, reports, manuscripts or reproduced without expressed written permission from HealthActCHQ.

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Fragile Infant Transition Summary™ (NICU FITS) is comprised of five multi-item scales that range from six to ten items in length measuring:

  • Maternal satisfaction with the NICU experience
  • Support and encouragement received with the transition experience from NICU to home
  • Self-confidence
  • Coping
  • Anxiety

Two global items measure infant progress and development, and an overall rating of the infant's health and well-being. Response options range from four to five levels using conventional standards. The NICU FITS also tracks the number of emergency room visits and hospital readmissions.
