The Joint Commission has selected the Watchful Eye program to be part of the Joint Commission’s Leading Practice Library. This recognition means the Watchful Eye has been reviewed by the Standards Interpretation Group (SIG) and accepted as meeting the Joint Commission’s standards.
Infants will be screened and treated for retinopathy of prematurity based upon the February 2006 AAP Policy statement. Please download Screening Examination of Premature Infants for Retinopathy of Prematurity Pediatrics 2006;117;572-576 at www.pediatrics.org/cgi/doi/10.1542/peds.2005-2749
