New cots for tiny tots at PCH

The Maternity and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Peterborough City Hospital has purchased 30 new cots to help improve the experience of women and babies, who use the services. 

“Our 20 new cots pink in colour, and are adjustable and soundless to push, which makes it easier for women to pick up their baby,” said Katrina Lilly, maternity inpatients ward manager for Peterborough City Hospital. 

“They are also designed to go over beds to help aid women who have had a caesarean section." 

NICU decided to purchase 10 purple cots to help identify clearly which cots were for their department.  

Katie Barke, Neonatal unit manager, said: “Our cots are height adjustable which will enable parents and staff to access the babies with ease. They are easy to clean and easily identifiable for when we are ready to move a baby from an incubator to a cot.”
