Teaching Nurses Infant Massage

A Nevada hospital is teaching its nurses and other health care professionals infant massage therapy, so that they can teach new parents in the community:

"If we can teach our nurses something as simple, that's often overlooked, the importance of human touch, the parents can then be taught by the nurses. And they feel as though they're doing something positive, which they are, for these babies. And as I say, with all the high-tech care, human touch is something that's often put aside and forgotten," Bacon said.
