Abstract
A qualitative survey was done in October 2014-February 2015 on 18 parents who all had an infant discharged from the neonatal unit on home oxygen. The survey was given and completed by the parents as they attended follow up clinic, for their infant. A total of 19 parents were asked to give feedback, however, one parent declined. Results indicated that at least 7/18 of parents stated that their quality of life was not impacted by the infant’s needs on home oxygen therapy. However, at least 5/18 parents felt that by caring their baby on home oxygen it very much impacted on their family holidays. This only highlights a snap shot of the quality of life which the families seem to have once they have an infant on home oxygen. In conclusion, the role of the community neonatal nurse seems to have a positive impact to the families as most of them seem to state that they felt supported.
