Promoting Safe Sleep in Hospitals

Denver Child Fatality Review Team created and distributed a letter to local hospitals about the importance of safe sleep promotion in the prevention of sleep-related deaths or sudden unexpected infant deaths (SUIDs). The letter includes information about the prevalence of these deaths in Colorado as well as steps hospitals can take to prevent them, including modeling safe sleep, using sleep sacks instead of blankets, and using images that depict safe sleeping environments.

The team asks that you share this letter widely in your networks and communities. You can read and download the complete letter here:
