Published:November 21, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jcjq.2022.11.008
      Approximately 4000 births take place at our hospital per year, all of which require a routine newborn examination completed within 48 hours.1 The majority of these examinations are performed by pediatric Junior Medical Officers (JMOs) in the Mothers and Baby Unit (MABU) room on the postnatal ward. This MABU room was also used for multiple tasks by midwives and doctors, including assessments of babies born via caesarean section and review of babies for whom there were clinical concerns.
