Updated NICE guidance was published on neonatal infection in April 2021. Their aim is to reduce the number of baby’s exposed to antibiotics unnecessarily, but to provide a conservative enough approach to their risk stratification, that infants who are unwell are identified early. The guideline also provides advice on infants at risk of delayed onset sepsis. This cohort will require a slightly different approach to assessment and management, which is detailed below.
