I will talk about setting up a program for nursing visits to SIDS parents and its importance. The first thing the parents need to know is what their baby died of; they need to know facts about SIDS, how to relieve their guilt reactions, and a set of guidelines for grief reactions. A four-point management system has been set up by the National SIDS Foundation and includes (1) an autopsy, (2) notification of cause of death within 24 to 48 hours, (3) use of SIDS as the cause of death on the death certificate when appropriate, and (4) availability of information and counseling to the parents.
