Getting Started

with Infant Safe Sleep Hospital Certification

Consider embarking on the journey to achieve designation as a National Infant Safe Sleep Hospital. Certification may be awarded hospital or system-wide and affects policies, practices across various departments, and hospital culture. Achieving certification requires a multi-department and multidisciplinary approach. The Quick Guide below outlines first steps to prepare to meet certification requirements and displays a thorough certification level breakdown.

Hospital Systems

System-level certification is available! Hospital systems can become certified through the creation of a system-wide infant safe sleep policy.  This option still allows individual hospitals within the system to certify at their care level.

System-wide certification must schedule a conference call with Cribs for Kids before submission.
