: What are the nursery levels for hospitals? I have seen LEVEL II and LEVEL III...which is more capable of handling emergency situations? Should I avoid LEVEL I altogether?
: Thank you, Melissa

The type of hospital you go to really depends on your situation. Every hospital has a NICU (or a special care nursery) and has neonatalogists on staff and on call 24/7. Actually - often times these neonatologists are also on staff at hospitals which are Level II's or III's as well. A Level II or Level III would overall be better equipped to handle an emergency most likely - depending on what the emergency is. High-tech medical equipment in these nurseries is what differientates them from each other (and of course the properly trained medical staff that goes along with the equipment.) However, the closest hospital is always the best hospital in the event of an emergency - at that point in time - it's level really doesn't matter. Debi
