Abstract

Caring for infants with HLHS and their parents is challenging. Social policies of the 1980s such as 'Baby Doe', 'Baby Fae', and diagnosis-related groups raise additional ethical and economic or financial questions. The nurse must diligently monitor tissue perfusion in the infant and the parents' coping with loss, while struggling with difficult ethical/legal issues.
