Neonatal transport is related to risk, which destabilizes the clinical condition of the newborn. This study aimed to present the assessment of risk of morbidity and mortality of the NB during the inter- and intra-hospital transport in accordance with the TRIPS and ERTIH-Neo scores.

The data were from the record of 57 transports performed with newborns in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The collected data were submitted to descriptive statistical analysis through absolute and relative frequencies. The results of the TRIPS was possible in only 26% of the population, the majority of the scores were higher than 10. As for intra-hospital transport, there was a predominance of newborns who had obtained a score between 16 and 20.
