Care of premature baby

I have a character born between 36 and 37 weeks' gestation. Setting is California, mid-1970s. What problems is he likely to have, and treatment will he get? He's going to grow up to be reasonably healthy and bright, if a little smaller than he might have been, so nothing lasting.

How soon would he be released from hospital, and what is the policy likely to be on older siblings visiting? Would he be in a special unit, or in a room with his mother?

Googled: Various combinations of premature, premie, 36 weeks, 4 weeks early.
