Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a specialized unit created for sick and premature newborns. Parents of admitted newborns came in stress when they came to know that their child is admitted to the NICU. In developing countries such as India, people having very less knowledge regarding physiotherapy interventions adopted in the NICU. Previously available literature from inception to 2017, searched with the keywords: “Parents perceptions,” “NICU Physiotherapy,” and “Medical staff perceptions” highlight the experiences of parents or stress levels in parents of hospitalized newborns in the NICU and perceptions of health-care providers' (HCP) toward patients' safety or the NICU research procedures adopted. Until now, there is no documentation on perceptions of both parents and HCP toward physiotherapy interventions adopted in the NICU.
