Partly based on the Latin natus , "born", neonatal means "newly born". Neonatal babies themselves are called neonates . Most hospitals now offer neonatal screening, which is used to detect diseases that are treatable only if identified during the first days of life, and specialized neonatal nursing as well. But despite spending much money on neonatal care, the U.S. still ranks lower than some much less wealthy countries (such as the Czech Republic, Portugal, and Cuba) in infant mortality (infant deaths).
There are four different levels of neonatal nursery where a neonatal nurse might work.  The updated classification of neonatal levels by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) includes a Level IV.
