Intervention Results:

  • Audit data showed that there was a significant increase in the rate of supine positioning from 39% at baseline to 83% at follow-up (p<0.001).
  • Parental surveys showed that there was a significant increase in the rate of supine position from 73% at baseline to 93% at follow-up (p<0.05).

Intervention Results:

Between baseline and a year after the initiation of the intervention, the rate of supine positioning increased from 82% to 95%, but the increase was not statistically significant (p=0.183). From baseline to a year following the intervention, the rate of supine positioning remained stable at 83% (p=1.000).
