AngelEye Keeps NICU Families Connected
October 2022 | When parents have a newborn baby, there are a lot of firsts. They don't want to miss a moment. But for parents who have a sick child in the NICU, they may be unable to visit or hold them. If they are allowed in it's for a limited amount of time.
Luckily, our newly installed camera system in the NICU may help ease some of the stress for our patient families, allowing them a chance to lay eyes on their babies whenever they want. The system, created by AngelEye Health, went live in December 2021, allowing families 24-hour access to their babies via individual room cameras.
Funded by private donors in the community, AngelEye cameras—a total of 106 in the NICU—are set over patients' beds and turned off only if patients are out of bed or if care is being performed. One access link is given to the NICU patient's parent, who then can share with other family and friends.
While every parent would like to be with their child every waking moment, even when they cannot, AngelEye may give them peace of mind that their child is OK.
