Any inborn infant who dies in the delivery room or at any other location in your hospital within 12 hours after birth and prior to admission to the NICU (regardless of birth weight or gestation) is defined as a "Delivery Room Death." These locations may include the mother's room, resuscitation rooms, or any location other than the NICU in your hospital. 

Outborn infants and infants who are admitted to the NICU should not be classified as Delivery Room Deaths.
