Response options range from four to five levels using conventional standards. The five scales measure maternal satisfaction with the NICU experience, support an encouragement received with the transition experience from NICU to home, self-confidence, coping, and anxiety. Two global items measure infant progress and development, and an overall rating of the infant’s health and well-being. The NICU FITS also tracks the number of emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
